Normally when someone says "big cat", our first thought is something like a lion or tiger.
However, this particular cat is of the house cat variety! As such, I would say that it's definitely a really big cat! I'm glad I don't have to pay the food bill of a pet like this!
Fat cat gets photo in 'Ripley's Believe It or Not'
The new Ripley's Believe It or Not! title, Enter If You Dare!, includes an entry on a weight loss clinic for pets. Sounds like a great concept for the TV series.
In 2009, the People's Dispensary for Sick Animals started a fat-fighting club for animals with weight problems, and Socrates the cat was one of nine chosen animals.
The fat cat from Newcastle, England, loves to eat cheese-and-onion potato chips and weighs a massive 22 lb. This is more than double his ideal weight and makes him "morbidly obese."
Now, I feed my cats pretty well. In fact, sometimes I feel that they eat better than I do.Lucky for me, neither of them seem to like potato chips and, judging from the above photo, that's probably a good thing!
As long as they stay out of my coffee and my chocolate...we'll get along just fine!
Now, let's get some coffee ad sit in the kitchen for a bit! Too hot to be outside!
