I used to be small and fat,

A good friend of the cat.

Now I am slim and large,

but I still need a charge.

You look at me but others you see.

Yet I stand still and can't flee.

What am I?

My guess:

I think it is a television

I used to be small and fat,

Older TV's were small and fat to accommodate the CRT's

A good friend of the cat.

Cat's loved to lay on top of them

Now I am slim and large,

Modern TV's have bigger screens but are relatively flat

but I still need a charge.

They still require power

You look at me but others you see.

You watch the TV to see other things

Yet I stand still and can't flee.

It is stationary
