Why do cats become overweight?

The gaining weight of a fat cat is roughly similar to humans. There are two primary reasons.

  • How much does your cat eat?
  • How active is your cat active?

With the change of time, Cats around the world have become more domesticated. It means humans are more interested now in adopting a cat. Adopting a cat is good because the poor cat would remain safe from the outside attack of the wild animal. Also, they can get enough food. 

But the sad thing is cats naturally have not enough activeness in a confined position in a home. As a result, they are comparatively less active. Most importantly, they can want more food to eat and spend their time without playing like an outdoor cat. As a result, they can get overweight.
