Garfield, here’s Monster

One reader has recently complained about her overweight cat, named Monster. The normal advice concerning cat health and feeding the animal a specific diet plan is not practical for she has four other feline companions who all share the same food source. The other cats are healthy and normal in their weight range. It has been suggested that Monster has an overactive thyroid gland and as for the solution to this problem, it is advisable that a vet is consulted as soon as possible. While Monster’s thyroid could be the problem it is just as likely that it’s a simple case of Garfield syndrome; a healthy appetite.
