Saturday chillin'

This is sooo Saturday. (oh, and add a bathrobe and coffee) The flop + paws up is the best part, and the fact that he's 182 pounds.

Paint him orange and it would remind me of Ryan Clark's cat. The cutest, fluffiest, laziest cat in the world. I believe the cats name was Dan, but its been.. uh.. 10 years since I've seen that cat.... [Read More]

OMG he's soooo precious, i just love fat animals. I know it sounds cruel that the more obese an animal is the, cuter it is to me, but i cant help it. U just want to cuddle up to them, either that or brush it ALL DAY. so cu te.

You could probably get a couple of sweaters out of that thing.

And a hat.

Just saying.

Bet that tail actually belongs to a racoon the cat fell on and crushed to death. Someone should go check.

Nice flooring, though. Obviously resists buckling.

You have to be careful those...He's laying pointy end up...Just in case you want to..um...do something cute, I mean stupid, like rub his belly...or play with his little tootsies... Yep, gotta watch those animals laying pointy end up...

But he's so cute...and um, that tummy is so endearing...Makes... me....want...to rub....MUST resist!!!!

chubbers animals rock. something about having to help them turn over. you can almost hear him say "eh" as he gives up trying to move and just passes out instead.

Lol "pointy side up" - from Get Fuzzy right?

tm
 |  Mar 04, 2006 at 12:35 PM

is he dead?

He looks like one of those Lucky Cat statues you find in Chinese/Asian restaurants.

O' Bless us with your Good Luck, Fat Cat!

That is one HEALTHY cat!!!!!!!!!!

Bunny

I hope the owners wise up before that cat dies of cancer or kidney failure

I usually love the photos here, but this picture isnt cute. Its sad. That cat is unhealthy and its actually animal cruelty to feed a cat so it gets that fat.

Vega
 |  Mar 04, 2006 at 01:00 PM

Have to agree with the last two comments. Neglectful owners does not equal cute. If this cat was as skinny as it is fat you'd all be horrified.

sandra
 |  Mar 04, 2006 at 01:13 PM

I love cats way too much to wish diabetes, kidney failure, arthritis and heart condtion caused by obesity on any of them. Not cute, sad.

TM, you're right!! You get the Fuzzy prize!!

lmao thats one adoarle lil porker!

 |  Mar 04, 2006 at 01:35 PM

Does anyone think it could be pregnant?

emily
 |  Mar 04, 2006 at 01:39 PM

Emily -- maybe -- but I really think this cat is just tubby. Gravid queens tend to look more pear-shaped. (And I agree that this cat is more than likely female, actually.)

Theo
 |  Mar 04, 2006 at 01:56 PM

Is this cat all white with a raccoon tail? Gorgeous!

And some cats just have slow metabolisms. Get over it, folks. My ex-husband has a "pillow cat" like this. She really doesn't eat that much (I know, because I used to live with her!), but she has two speeds -- extra slow and off!

Andee
 |  Mar 04, 2006 at 02:16 PM

Ooooo! Look at that lovely fur, that kissable tummy, that incredibly beautiful tail - and I haven't even mentioned the pose yet! *kiss, kiss, kiss*

Emily - no, this one is not pregnant. Just, fa... uh, chubby. On pregnant cats - even hairy ones like this one (which I suspect is a male, by the way) - you see the nipples clearly when they've gone this far. And, the roundness covers only the lower two thirds of the body. This baby is fa... errrr, chubby all the way up to his chin.

I can't get over that TAIL!!!

Pathetic..and no way is he 182 lbs. I know I have a big boned German Shepard and he only weighs 102!

Doods, that is not a fat cat. THIS is a fat cat:

I once attempted to put my Maine Coon on a diet. After what has now come to be known as The Sofa Arm Ambush, I gave him his canned cat food and backed away slowly. He lived to be old and toothless and when he slept on the sofa arm, his fat hung over the sides and he was fine with that.

That's not a chubby cat. *This* is a chubby cat!

Cute but scary, I think.

Wow, that is some serious relaxin'.

And James, I think your Flickr cat is not fat--just very furry and spread out. I know a lot of cats that look like that and they are actually completely normal weight.

That is one chubby furry-licious, cuddle-licious cat.

makes me want to cuddle it to death >.<

I have never seen a Maine Coon housecat that wasn't at least chubby. Or a British Shorthair either. Some breeds, once you spay or neuter 'em, poof!

A woman I used to work with showed us all a picture once of her holding her huge red tabby cat, who she said was 34 pounds (and he looked it). What I thought was funny was that the woman herself was tiny, probably around 90 pounds soaking wet. She must have had to do special workouts to be able to pick him up without getting a hernia.

i have a maine coon and he's not fat at all. he's 16 pounds and the vet said he could easily put on another 4 pounds. he looks big, but he's all fluff. fat kitties, while cute, can have so many health issues. :(

seejay
 |  Mar 04, 2006 at 04:02 PM

Mostly sad. The owner could try to take better care of her animal. I've never seen an obese cat for real, all the ones I know are healthy.

Kari
 |  Mar 04, 2006 at 04:04 PM

OO! This must be a baby Harp Seal, pretending a cat!

Being 'chubby', I know from personal experiance that it is NOT cute or fun. :((( That poor cat, it's morbidly obese. That's the medical term for it.

You might want to be careful, by the way. When a 'chubby' cat, dog, or any other living thing lies on their back and are that large, they risk sleep apnea. It's not just a human condition.


And for gods sake, if you don't believe that the cat's uncomfortable... try strapping on a fat suit and living in it. Then tell me you felt cuddly and cute.

Before we start getting righteously indignant about whether Senor Lardass is unhealthy, let us bear in mind that "substantial" is a natural state for all cats, on account of their inbuilt buddhist tendencies. I've never overfed my cats, and they've all been "cuddly", around 20lbs, and live to about 16, which isn't a bad age for an outdoor/indoor cat.
Ands please stop calling him "fat" - he has feelings, you know :)

Dude that cat is straight chillin', fat or no. Don't hate.

Shar
 |  Mar 04, 2006 at 06:46 PM

If Santa Claus has a cat that is exactly what it looks like.

maymee
 |  Mar 04, 2006 at 07:06 PM

:( Poor cat, it's gonna die young...
That's not healthy.

eww thats gross

Jakee'
 |  Mar 04, 2006 at 08:31 PM

Listen, that cat is FAT. The only thing cute about him is his posture. I'm not making any bones about it, coz my dormitory warden's Daschund is obese too, and I can't do a darn thing to help him out coz he tries to nip me all the time. This cat better get some exercise before he can be called 'cute'.

Subhangi
 |  Mar 04, 2006 at 09:07 PM

Look - I have a big fat Maine Coon as well ... no matter what I feed her (which, in reality, is small half cup portions of chicken, rice and veg supplements twice a day) she's just ... FAT. She's also fifteen years old and her vet says she's going to live a GOOD long time. Just like people, some cats are naturally bigger, with slow metabolisms. So actually I do think this cat is cute, just like mine.
Where do you think the expression "Fat and Happy" came from?

Diana
 |  Mar 04, 2006 at 09:59 PM

I'm going to have to agree with the "just big boned" camp on this one. This cat will be fine.

Now, can we just picture it trying to roll over? How it would take that little bit of extra torque, and it might get stuck? I love fat cats!
