They also have some tips on how to reduce the diet of pudgy playmates, and our friends at the ASPCA® offer a quick overview of not only what causes obesity, but how you and your pet can work together to counteract it.

Pudgy can be cute, but for felines, having a little more to love can bring the potential for certain health risks due to obesity.

There are a number of causes for feline obesity, and many times a simple shift in feeding routine or an increase in exercise can help solve the problem. If you have a chubby kitty, check out this quick overview from our friends at the ASPCA®. It reviews the causes of feline obesity and how you and your cat can work together to slim down.
