(St. Louis, MO) -- Nestle-Purina is weighing in on the subject of fat cats. The St. Louis-based maker of Purina Cat Chow is working to get 100-thousand cat owners to sign a pledge promising to have their pets checked out for their weight. If those pledges are logged by May 2nd, Nestle-Purina says it will donate 50-thousand dollars to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention. The association estimates nearly 60-percent of owned cats in the country are overweight and under 12-percent of their owners are aware the felines have a problem with their weight.
