Fat cat obsesses over the sight of a grilled cheese sandwich

This cute but obese tabby cat who dearly loves his food is obsessing over the grilled cheese sandwich that is female human companion is deliberately eating in front of him. She is teasing him with it and he has fallen for the bait. You can see his head tilt to the right and in his mind he is eating it as his mouth opens and closes. He would give his right arm to get his chops around a piece of that grilled cheese.

And I don't want to spoil the fun but you can see why he has this reaction. In the past, on numerous occasions I suspect, he has got the cheese. He has got what he wants because his owner loves him and can't resist his charming demands. And so over a period of time he has got into the habit of eating human snacks which is why he expects it to happen this time on camera.


Note: This is a video from another website. Sometimes they are deleted at source which stops them working on this site. If that has happened, I apologise but I have no control over it.

I'm pretty sure that he got some of it after the filming was completed! A bit of cheese is fine, of course. They love the fat in it. But you know what the veterinarians say about obese cats? They say that there is an epidemic and that about 40% of domestic cats are overweight. One reason is because they are given too many treats. In fact, that is probably the main reason and the reason behind that reason is because their owners love them and they want to do something for them which pleases them. And many cat owners have normalised obesity. They can no longer recognise what normal weight looks like! I wonder if she realises it.

Unfortunately, you have to be cruel to be kind sometimes because, as is the case for humans, feline obesity leads to secondary health problems such as feline diabetes.

You know that if a diabetic person loses even a relatively small amount weight, on the basis that their diabetes is caused by being overweight, then they will go into remission very often. This is a well tried and tested process. You don't want to look after diabetic cat because there is quite a lot of extra work to do. In fact, I have a page on that by a person who did look after a diabetic cat and he wrote about his experiences.
