There's no doubt Jamie is a lazy cat .. but he's also a laid back character .. nothing bothers him. He's chilled and relaxed, so maybe he has an equally slow metabolism? If he's out he won't even move for a car driving onto the property, you go round him or you get out and move him. If he lived in a town, or even in the village he'd probably have been run over or stolen by now. (He also goes into people's vehicles)
I did ask the vet for advice, I asked about checking his thyroid but they felt it was unnecessary. I do agree at 6.7kg he is very over weight, in comparison Tia is 3.4kg and a little underweight. I suppose he should be about 5kg. Again I ask,What can I do? (Rhetorical question - answers on a post card are not necessary) If he was a dog I'd increase his exercise, but he's not and cats simply don't have the same rules in life. I've never had a fat cat before, but neither have I had such a sweet loving character of a cat either so maybe the derogatory remarks, though not unfounded do hurt a little.
