'Monster' Cat In China Weighs 33 Pounds

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.

My SO and I saw this cat on the chU news 2 nights' ago, and we were almost screaming in delight and amusement. :D

The cat is so obese & rotund that:
- owner has to give him a push up the bed
- when he lies down, his head cannot touch the bed, so owner has to put a little pillow under his head, followed by a little quilt cover over his sweet. :)

This cat is definitely cute but not healthy, no thanks to his guardian.

Woah!!! Like so many little singapore kids. But kids have to go to TAF club to trim down fat. He seems to be fond of his cat but still...I think no more chicken treats for the 3 amigos....well maybe just one per week.

My dad YM me when he saw this cat on some news site on the internet. He had printed out the picture on his desktop and promised he would keep for me. The next day, colleague cut out the picture from Wanbao and passed to me. I do not know what is their ulterior motive lah, but I guess it is to remind me not to let Spencer comes to this stage!

Oh God. That is no cat. That, my friends, is the latest development in East Asian military tanks. An achievement for Chinese war technology.

Coincidentally, I've put all my cats on a diet. I see tubbiness lurking around.

*glances worriedly at Teddy*

We saw a cat almost that big while househunting in Wisconsin, USA. We didn't see the cat until we returned to the living room... a 'pillow' jumped off the couch and walked away. No one has mentioned how this monster goes potty. I thought my 17-pound cat was fat!

I was as horrified at this as I am when seeing photos of 400 pound humans. I heard that the Guiness Book of World Records has stopped giving an award for fattest animals. They don't want to encourage such things. I feel sorry for the cat. If he was mine it would be Wellness Light for him and then lots of exercise, that is, when he could walk again.

Saw this and felt really sorry for him, and somehow it's more sad taht people think this is funny or cute. Rather, it can be considered cruel.
