  1. Cats
    I have an overweight cat who is about 17 pounds (her name's Rosie). We are putting her on a diet from the vet of a cup of food a day, feeding her a half cup twice daily. We thought she was fat because she ate too much, but now that we monitor her eating, we've noticed that she actually doesn't...

  3. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Hi all, I've got 3 mice (all lovely!), the dominant one is normal sized, the middle one is small and slender and the submissive one is really quite fat! They're all girls and I've had them for about 10 weeks now. They're fed on rodent / hamster food (there's no specialist mouse food available...
  4. Lizards

  5. Ferret Discussion
    We've got two ferrets who live roaming free in our living room, one is a healthy weight but the other is really chubby. When we first got him he was the runt of a family of rabbiting ferrets so he was severely underweight and malnourished. We've always free-fed our other ferret and he's never...
  6. Hedgehog Discussion
    so Izzie, my wonder-hog, is quite the wall-hugger. By that I mean that when she is placed in a spot, she looks for a wall, or something that she can stand next to, or ideally, bury into. I have a nice hallway in my large apartment in which she loves to run- she's a little tubby so I take her...
  7. General Animal Discussion
    I heard the craziest thing the other day. I heard two people talking about making dogs and cats fat so they aren't as hyper. I mean wow...I have seen some obese animals and they were much slower and less likely to escape the yard but I have never heard of anyone doing it on purpose.

    I bought another female mouse 2 weeks ago and introduced her to my other female, well the new mouse kept humping the older mouse and i cant see any testicles, but now my older mouse is becoming very fat.

    I currently have 2 female guppies alone in a 29 gallon tank, well with a bunch of snails of course! They have been alone in the tank, without any males for a long time, maybe a year or more. And i noticed a few days ago that the blue one had gotten rather fat. she looks pregnant. and i know...
  12. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    when i first got my rats you could see there ribs, had thin fur, were not very active, and they were really light and frail. it seemed like they would crush if you held them even slightly to hard. i have been feeding them a home made mix that balances out with there dietary requirements. they...
  13. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I just got my first rat 17 days ago from a pet store, she was going to be a feeder rat. Now I think she is pregnant because she is getting sort of fat and I can see her nipples. When I got her she was in a cage by herself, but I think they had just moved her recently because she had fancier...
