My little orange kitty Oliver loves to eat and sleep. He's a bit over weight, but it's hard to get him to work out because he has cat herpes? So he gets stressed out and has a hard time breathing through his nose. He's my baby so I kind of just try to play with him but not a whole lot of luck. At night, he comes around to beg for food by looking oober cute. Lately I've noticed that he's been stretching his hind legs a lot. I figured it was just because he's been laying down and waiting for me to walk by so he can rub up against my leg and make his eyes all wide eyed and cute. I picked him up for a bit (he hates to get picked up so I only do it for a bit at a time) and when I put him down, he stretched and it sounded like someone cracking their knuckles. He laid down and acted like he wanted to have me scratch his tummy (another one of his tricks). I'm just a bit worried that the stretching and cracking sound is a sign he really does need to work out a bit more. During the holidays, it seems he gets even more lazy... should I be worried?
