There’s a phrase for someone who’s greedy and selfish. That type of person is called a fat cat. While humorous and visual, the phrase “fat cat” more accurately describes a cat’s weight. Since Americans are getting more obese day by day, it’s only a matter of time that people may wonder how fat can a cat get?

Experts at the Humane Society say, “When looking at your cat from above or from the side, you should be able to see a waist.”

Remember, playtime and exercise is crucial to your cat’s well-being so not only should you be getting plenty of exercise, but your cat should too. After all, you don’t want to look more obese than your cat (or vice versa).
