In an average year, cat owners in the United States spend over $4 billion on cat food. That's one billion dollars more than they spend on baby food
Cats are purely carnivorous by nature and need many essential nutrients, such as taurine, in their food. Commercial cat food contains these supplements, which is why other pet foods are not recommended for cats. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
Is your cat gaining weight?
Playing with your cat is a great way to keep her active. Throw her stuffed mouse across the room and let her chase it. Encourage her to follow you around the house. Every little bit of exercise helps. Experts recommend at least 20 minutes of play or exercise a day for cats. Find out more about feline exercise from the experts at Iams.

Cats cannot perceive sweet foods
In order to taste sweet foods, individuals must possess two different types of special protein receptors on the tongue. Cats only produce one of these two proteins, so they cannot perceive sweetness. Interestingly enough, researchers think wild cats used to have this ability thousands of years ago, but the wild cats lost it when they converted to a mostly meaty diet, probably out of necessity.(From thedailycat.com - www.thedailycat.com)
It takes 5 Mice - The size of an average cat dinner is nutritionally equivalent to approximately 5 Mice
Feral cats in the wild face a meager existence since it takes a lot of effort to catch just one mouse, not to mention five. By comparison, your kitty is probably living in high style. Keep in mind that your cat still needs exercise because its body was built to be active. Be sure to follow portion recommendations on pet food labels, as it's extremely easy to wind up with a fat cat. If yours is already exhibiting some heft around its middle, take care that your cat doesn't have free access to food all day (imagine what you might look like if you sat in front of an open bag of chips or cookies all day!). While cats usually stop eating when they feel full, sometimes temptation or boredom can get the best of them. (From thedailycat.com,)
The Fattest Cat weighed 46 Pounds - The fattest cat on record, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, was Himmy, a neutered tabby. Most average-sized house cats weigh between eight and 11 pounds, although weights vary depending on the type of cat. Obesity is a problem in domestic felines, just as it is in humans, so keep tabs on your tabby if you suspect it's putting on the pounds.

Cat Food Calculator - Based on The Cornell Book of Cats Nutrition Information*
