I would just suggest spending a little more play time per day with him (cat owner for 15 years) and if you can, feed him separately from the others. Feed your other (4?) cats first while keeping the overweight one inside or in a different area until they are done, and then feed your special guy. If you can, ask a vet about a good diet cat food to get him on, and go for that, if you can't then just feed smaller amounts of food, or buy some diet brand cat food.

That's the best advice I can give ya, extra play time is important, especially if your cat is getting older and doesn't like to play as much, try different activities, string, feathers, ribbon, the little red laser light of doom, any thing that might get his attention. My Shadow, before she passed away last year, loved playing with those little felt mice things xD

Will he chase a laser pointer? Great exercise for the cat and lots of laughs for you.

Absolutely more exercise daily. Our vet said to feed overweight cats half a can of wet food 2 times a day. Canned food is mostly water. Dry food is high in calories. It worked!

Cool! Thanks everyone! I think I'm gonna put him on a diet and play with him as much as I can! ;) he's my big baby!!! We call him Mr.mom because he takes care of all the foster kittens I bring in! Everytime he sees a new kitten I see that look in his eyes that say "really another on!?" he cleans them and plays with them....while laying down....I just totally changed the subject! :) ;p
