What happens when you combine cats and catsuits?
What if you combine your cat with a cat suit?
That’s the scenario being explored by two Canadian cat owners in Australia who want to see if a cat and cat suit can be a more natural fit.
A study conducted by researchers at the University of New South Wales in Sydney found that people who wear catsuits were more likely to be overweight than people who don’t, and are more likely than their cat-free counterparts to be obese.
The study, which surveyed 5,741 people in the Sydney area, was published in the International Journal of Obesity in February.
It found that cat-lovers were more overweight and obese than cat-don’ters.
The researchers say that the reason for the difference is the size of the wearer’s chest and hips.
“This suggests that a suit is not the optimal way to reduce body weight in cats,” said Dr Anya Bhattacharya, lead author of the study.
“We know that people with large chests and hips tend to have a greater body fat mass, so it makes sense that a cat-suit would be ideal for those individuals.”
While the researchers say the results show that a high-profile cat suit is no longer the best way to look healthy and attractive, the study’s authors say that it does show that it’s not necessarily a bad idea to choose a cat with an active lifestyle and an active personality.
The study suggests that this lifestyle can help prevent obesity in cats, and therefore help protect their health.
