Many people judge whether a cat is overweight according to its weight. It is unscientific. Different kinds of cats have different weight requirements. Simply put, we can’t use the weight and body shape standards of exotic short haired cats to measure Oriental short haired cats? Therefore, cat weight should be divided in different ways.
Lean muscle cat
As for the slim cats represented by Siamese cat, Oriental short hair cat, Bengal leopard cat and Singapore cat, they have long body shape, slender limbs, light body shape and beautiful muscle lines. If they get fat, they will be shown on their stomachs first. When they had a tight lower abdomen appeared soft pouch meat, the two sides of the body obviously bulged out, showing a jujube shaped, that they should lose weight. And when their faces and necks are obviously silly, it means they are too fat!
Round and thick cat
Plump kittens, such as British and exotic Bobcats, have a pair of big bony shelves, thick beard pads, big plump cheeks, and thick neck, which make them look very fat. For such cats, we can look at the ratio of their head to belly. If the width of their belly exceeds the width of their head, it means that their food standard may exceed the standard~
How should we judge the strong and solid cats such as American short haired cat and Chinese civet cat (details)? At this time, you can see their scapula protrusion. When the cat lies down, there is no obvious protrusion at the scapula. Then, go on a diet to lose weight!
Long hairy cat
Cats with a lot of fur are often considered fat when they are not fat. For example, jinjila, Persian and Himalayan cats are regarded as fat because their hair is too heavy and heavy. Therefore, we can judge whether they are overweight or not when we give them bath water and flush them tightly to their bodies. We can see the ratio of their stomachs to their heads and necks Examples are enough.
In fact, because the standard weight of each breed of cat is different, we can take the standard weight of each cat as the reference basis. When the cat’s weight exceeds 15% of the standard weight, it can be called overweight; if the cat’s weight exceeds 30% of the standard weight, it is called obesity; if it exceeds 30% of the standard weight, it is called obesity, and we must lose weight as soon as possible.
