Dr Carolina Vilches Romo, an expert in Feline medicine and surgery at nationwide chain The Vet, says many cat owners underestimate just how much exercise their moggies need.Dr Romo, based at The Vet’s clinic in Waltham Forest, Essex, said: ‘Dog owners are well aware that they need to exercise their pet.'Cat owners, however, don’t tend to look at their pet in the same way when it comes to exercise, and we’d like that to change.'We’re not recommending that people start walking their cat on a lead like a dog, as this can cause distress to an animal that is fiercely independent and craves control.'But house cat owners should be creating a daily ‘exercise’ routine for their pet through active play and stimulation, in the same way a dog owner knows when to take their four-legged friend for a walk.’As well as the health risks, Dr Romo told how fat cats can also suffer emotional distress.
Many players were requesting faster loading tables.
These were made of stone or clay and secured to the ground with a peg in the center, but required significant effort to turn.
True (freely-spinning) potter's wheels were apparently in use in Mesopotamia by 3500 BCE and possibly as early as 4000 BCE, The first evidence of wheeled vehicles appears in the second half of the 4th millennium BCE, near-simultaneously in Mesopotamia (Sumerian civilization), the Northern Caucasus (Maykop culture) and Eastern Europe (Cucuteni-Trypillian culture), so the question of which culture originally invented the wheeled vehicle is still unsolved.
She added: ‘What we see is that some fat cats struggle to groom themselves as their excess heft causes an immobility of the spine.'This could cause a cat real emotional distress and is just one of the myriad reasons why it’s so important to keep your pet at a reasonable weight.’When it comes to ‘exercise’, Dr Romo says it’s vital a house cat - or fat cat - is played with energetically for around 30 minutes a day.
She said: ‘Find something your cat enjoys, and then look to vary it, increasing the duration.'Hunting-type games work well, where you encourage your cat to chase or stalk something - whether it’s a battery-powered mouse or a simple shoelace.'They also love to bat toys around and chase after them.’Recent research by the British Veterinary Association found that more than 60 per cent of UK vets believe obesity is the biggest health and welfare concern regarding pets.
