Is Your Cat a Healthy Weight?

What is your Cat's Score?

Do you know how to determine if your cat is a healthy weight? Finding out your cat’s ideal body weight and learning how to maintain it helps your kitty to live a long and healthy life. 

When determining your cat’s ideal weight, it’s important to remember there is no “one size fits all perfect” weight. Every cat will vary depending on breed, gender, and age.  

Feeding your cat a portioned diet rather than free feeding, making sure they’re active everyday, and attending regular vet check-ups are all great things you can do to ensure your kitty is staying as healthy as possible.

Check out our Body Score Chart below to determine where your cat rates and what action steps can be taken to ensure a healthy weight.
