    All felines, even the big cats; lions and tigers; have belly pouches. A belly pouch is perfectly normal and healthy.  Domesticated cats start to develop them around 6 months old. Some breeds tend to have more noticeable pouches such as Bengal, Egyptian Mau and Pixie-bob.   Although belly pouches are perfectly healthy, cat parents need to tell obesity from the normal belly pouches. Obesity increases the risks of heart problems, diabetes, and hypertension, arthritis and cancers.
