That sounds like this one time we thought our super fat dog was just being lazy, as he was also laying in his own waste... He died...
When your cat is too lazy to lift himself out of his own feces, you know it's time to put him on a diet. On the bright side, you don't need to waste money on a cat bed. Like Puss n Boots in Shrek 4.
Wow. I'd say its time for a diet. They make some pretty quality diet foods for cats; I'd consult the vet ASAP. It isn't fair to the animal and is cruel of you to have let it get to this point.
Not only does the cat need special diet food, he needs it in moderation. It really is beyond me why people are so scared to control feed their animals. It's almost as if they're worried about underfeeding, so they overcompensate. What they don't realize that being overweight can be just as detrimental to an animals health as being underweight.
-nods- I just sold a snake hatchling to this guy with clear instructions to feed it every 6-8 days (normal for a hatchling). Instead, he fed it every 2 days, potentially causing massive internal damage, because "it looked hungry" -.- So yes, the human factor might be in play. On the other hand, there are quite some disorders / diseases in felines that can cause overweight without overfeeding, so we can't really blame OP without more information.
He didn't feline getting up. Good strategy, he got you to do it like a pussy. Fat chance of him doing anything unless you start cutting the kitty fat.
Urine for a lot of that type of thing if you don't get your cat on a diet.
Wow, that is kind of sad. Do you give him too much food or does he get it somewhere else? If you caused this: YDI and please stop, being overweight is not very healthy for cats. If your neighbour feeds your cat or your cat hunts too much: YLS
