The Feline Advisory Bureau in the UK reports that the most common form of malnutrition in cats is overfeeding and it's estimated that 25 to 30 per cent of cats in the UK are obese. Obese cats are defined as those that are at least 20 per cent heavier than their optimal weight and long-term studies have shown that obesity in dogs and cats can significantly shorten life expectancy.  Obesity increases the risks of many diseases including diabetes, urinary tract problems, joint disease, some skin conditions and exercise intolerance.
Episode 05 of the http://www.mypetcarevideoshow.com  includes a  clip in which Arloa of Cat Chat TV demonstrates how to tell if your cat is overweight
