Abstract

The goal of this study was to analyze the mode of inheritance of an overweight body condition in an experimental cat population. The cat population consisted of 95 cats out of which 81 cats could be clearly classified into lean or overweight using a body condition score system (BCS). The classification into lean or overweight of these 81 cats was used for segregation analyses. Complex segregation analyses were performed to test for the significance of one environmental and 4 genetic models (general, mixed inheritance, major gene, and polygene). The major gene model explained the segregation of the overweight phenotype best. This meant that the first time a genetic component could be shown to be responsible for the development of overweight in cats.
