'Monster' Cat In China Weighs 33 Pounds

 

POSTED: 6:16 pm EST February 20, 2006
UPDATED: 6:32 pm EST February 20, 2006

 

A 33-pound cat in Qingdao, China, is being described as a "feline monster" because of its 31-inch waist and large size, according to a report.

The 9-year-old cat from the Shandong Province is so heavy it needs the help of its owner to get onto a bed. However, the cat is in surprisingly good health despite its weight, Local 6 News reported. The cat's owner said it has no interest in eating fish but prefers to eat six pounds of chicken and pork each day.

This fat cat is not alone in his weight problem, according to the report. Obesity has become a serious problem for the modern cat, primarily due to a lack of exercise and a richer diet. Cats are susceptible to a range of illnesses including kidney trouble and diabetes, if they are allowed to remain overweight.

It's not a monster. It's just fat.

If you read Chinese, you will notice the caption literally says "The happy life of a big fat cat". He's obese IMHO.

Agreed.  It doesn't seem likely that it can walk much if at all.  From the article:

"The 9-year-old cat from the Shandong Province is so heavy it needs the help of its owner to get onto a bed."

My cat Alex (Big Al) has been as high as 30 before the vet took me to the woodshed. He never quite looked as fat as that cat. Maybe he has a bigger frame or something.

That...is one tubby kitty. We have a kitty that is a big butterball down the street. He's probably 22 lbs or so. One day I saw him put on a serious sprint to go after a squirrel, though. It was amazing to see.

The squirrel went up a tree. I went over for a look. Now, I've been cussed out by squirrels before- but this one was going on like no squirrel I have ever heard before. I guess that whopping stripey streak going after him was just too much.

Pussy galore

Big cat

LEO knows he's the top cat. The massive Maine Coon moggie from Chicago weighs 35lbs and measures a record-breaking 47.9ins from nose to tail. His paws fit a size 2 child's shoe.

31-inch waist? Riiight...same as in high school, right? Don't think so. I heard he scratches the "2" in "32" off and changes it to a "1". So vain.
