It’s tempting to feed your cat. Not only does your cat like eating treats, but feeding your cat can be a sign of affection that both you and your cat can enjoy.
Of course, it’s easy to overfeed your cat. As a general rule, don’t feed your cat too much. If you suspect your cat is gaining weight, be honest with yourself and weigh your cat while keeping its food portions to a reasonable size and give your cat plenty of exercise. Remember, food alone isn’t the only way you can show your cat affection.
