I have a six month old kitten who is pushing 10 pounds! Our other kitten (his littermate) is only 4 pounds, and eats far more than our fat kitten. The vet told me not to worry, but lately the fat kitten has been breathing really loudly (like he is having breathing problems), and has been having a hard time cleaning himself. I measure his food - he honestly doesn't eat even a cup of dry food a day, and he picks at his wet food. We never give him table scraps or treats. He runs around the house all night long, so I don't think he is suffering from lack of exercise. Is it possible that he could have a thyroid problem? I don't know if this is related, but it's always struck me as odd - he has very large, visible, pink nipples - could this be hormonal?
