Eats 6 lbs Of Chicken, Port A Day


Feb. 20 - Being a pampered pet with an easy life has made a cat in China very, very fat.

Weighing a whopping 33 pounds, the nine-year-old cat, astonishingly, still enjoys good health. This feline monster from Qingdao, Shandong Province, has a waist measurement of 31.5 inches.

The cat is so heavy it needs the help of its owner to get onto a bed -- so expecting him to fulfill his cat duties, such as catching vermin, might be a bit much. It would seem catching a nap, using his own little blanket and pillow, is the extent of his skills.

The cat's owner maintains a healthy appetite is to blame for the state of his cat's belly.

The cat has, according to his owner, no interest in fish, preferring to eat six pounds of chicken and port each day.

This fat cat is not alone in his weight problem - like their human counterparts, 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.
