My cats are little piggies so I have to portion their food and I have a laser pointer to give them exercise. She just sounds like she over eats.

I agree, sounds like she over eats. My kitty got chunky too, shes now about 15lbs. Im having to watch her food and we try to get her to run around as much as possible. She definitely starting gaining after being spayed and looks preggo lol

My cats will overeat if I let them and they tend to get the soft, saggy belly pouch. Their bellies have never seemed hard.

It’s highly unlikely that your cat is pregnant if you had her spayed a few months back, but when in doubt, see your vet!

My spayed kitty is a fatty too. She has a hard andomen too. She was sporting her largest belly at her highest weight when I took her to the vet a few months back for something, the vet didn’t say anything was abnormal when she felt her, just that she’s overweight.

My cat got fat after she was spayed too.  Shes probably just a fatty.  

Does she have fleas on maybe?  If she has fleas she can get worms from licking her fur.  Worms will make her belly pregnant-like and hard.  You should be able to see the worms in the litter box after she goes.

My boy cat got super fat after he was fixed… It’s because he no longer has to go out running around the neighborhood for days on end to find a girlfriend (or in her case, a boyfriend) and food is good… I think she is most definitely over-eating.  I worked at a no-kill SPCA and there was a cat there who was pretty thin when she came in but after being in quarantine for 10 days she looked super pregnant.  I was CONVINCED she was going to have kittens any day, after a few more days with no kittens we took her to the vet to double check before making an appointment to have her spayed (so no potential kittens would be harmed) and the vet found a scar on her belly, she had been spayed already!  She was just so happy to have a steady supply of food she would just eat and eat and her belly would get super big and hard!  We started feeding her smaller amounts more often until she realized we weren’t going to starve her and her survival instincts relaxed. 🙂

I suggest limiting her food and seeing if that makes a difference. If nothing changes, get a vet’s opinion! 🙂  Good luck!
