My cat recently was restricted to a DIET!! Because she is way over weight! Its unhealthy for a cat to be over weight because it makes them less active and there joints could cramp up! Make sure your feeding your pets the proper amount of food..... Annoyingly she meows every morning for food and races upstairs when she hears the crackle of a chip bag hoping that someone might be feeding her. If your thinking of getting a pet or just got one or even had pets for a long time. You should always check and be sure that your pet is getting the right amount of food everyday.
