Thanks for the article Jackie! Lol, I definitely cannot count his ribs. I can barely even feel them. All I feel is fat. And yes, I can see his middle from the top. His belly sways when he walks and it hangs down pretty far.
Ollie has always had really loose feeling skin. Even when we first found him and he was underweight, he felt so soft and squishy. Its like he doesn't have much muscle tone at all. Tiger is a big boy, but he feels hard and he is all muscle. I can feel his ribs too under a thin layer of fat, so he is not overweight. Ollie is like jello! He's just a big fat jiggly boy! I really think that its his body type, combined with being an apartment kitty and laying around a lot. He's my youngest and most active kitty so I was surprised to see him gain so much. I'm not sure how much he weighs. I don't have a scale but I should get one soon. When I pick him up, it feels like he is at least 13lbs, maybe even 15 or more.
BTW, that pic was taken awhile ago. He is even fatter now! Next time we go to the vet I'll be sure to talk to her about it and see what she says. I'm sure she will say that he's overweight and want to put him on diet food.
