All of us love cats! It doesn’t matter what their size is, we love them all.

There’s a subreddit group called ‘Illegally Big Cats’ where people can post pictures of their over-sized kitties, it has already massed a community of over 13k members and it’s choc-a-bloc with beautiful felines.

But however much we love looking at chunky kitties, being overweight is really not good for their health.

When a cat is overweight, it can lead to several health issues that could shorten their lifespan.

Switching their food to diet cat food made for weight loss can help your cat start to shed those pounds without them even realizing it.

There are of course certain cat breeds, like Maine Coons, that are naturally big without being overweight.

The largest ever recorded measured 123cm from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail. And the male of the breed can reach a staggering 16kg in weight.

A cat that carries around too much weight can have a whole host of health problems, just like us humans.

So if you feel your kitty is beginning to look chunky, it’s time to reassess their eating habits and provide them with the correct diet and the best cat food for weight loss.

Of course, it’s not all doom and gloom, there are plenty of chunky cats that lead a long and healthy life.
