Body Condition Chart


Body Condition provides a more accurate view of whether a cat is at the right weight or not rather than simply taking the actual kilos or pounds into account :

• Cats, like humans, can have different body types: the ideal weight for a Maine Coon is not the same as for a delicate and finely boned cat!
• Our perception of the “right weight” for our cats is often simply incorrect; we can think that an overweight cat is the perfect weight.


The WSAVA (World Small Animal Vet Association) Body Condition chart in the following link will help you determine if your cat is under or overweight…. Or just right!
