    '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.

    Watch Local 6 News for more on this story.

    Awww I wanna pet the kitty. Having one that big would be nice for those long winter nights for snuggling/sleeping purposes.

    Six pounds of chicken & pork? That's one expensive kitty. You know, they don't HAVE to feed it that much... It's not like he's going to start rummaging through the cabinets & opening the Little Debbies.

    I use my 17 pound cat as a foot warmer when I'm laying on the couch

    But I hope he doesn't get any bigger, he'd get a complex if he suddenly ended up on tv for being fat!

    How can they say that the cat is healthy if it can't get up on the bed on its own? Aren't cats a little more athletic?

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    Well, the stray cat we took in last July is fat now and we feed him small amounts of expensive canned lo-carb diet food and he has not lost any weight. And he's too lazy to hunt now -- we can hardly get him to go outside -- so we're his only food source.

    The only reason he can jump onto our bed is because we have a chest at the foot of it. Otherwise, he'd been floor or chair bound.

    I am worried about him, but the vet said that sometimes happens with strays who have been starved for a long time. We don't even call him by his name any more, just "Fatty." He he. He's super loving, tho.

    Our other cat is normal weight, and even he seems to look at the other one critically now, taunting him a bit at times because he can't jump much.

    My BF's late mom got a cat at the shelter some 6-7 years ago. The cat was probably already deranged when she got it. BF's mom has passed away 5 years ago, and of course BF's dad clings to that cat as a remembrance of the time when his wife was still alive. Problem is: this cat is a monster. I usually love cats and always want to pet them, but this one I really dislike. She is huge, sheds tons of white hair (cool on dark pants...), likes to pee on sofas and beds, and always wants to eat. She'll nag nag nag till you give her something, following you like a dog everywhere, so we always need to close doors around the flat ('cause of her peeing frenzies).
    Now the poor thing is probably depressed and having half a dozen mental issues, so I feel sorry for her, but she's a PITA all the same.
    I told BF that what bugs me most about that cat is that she probably made him dislike cats in general and if and when we eventually live together he'll never want to get a kitty, and I'll blame THIS bad cat for that
    Nope.

    I have that same situation here. A stray we rescued that we've been unable to find a home for has fattened up tremendously, even when I feed her seperately from my other two cats and feed her limited amounts of dietetic cat food. If left with the food bowl she'll eat twice as much as my other two cats combined. I was wondering if it was because she'd been starving when she showed up at my back door. We call her 'Fatty' too.

    For the life of me I cannot figure out why someone threw her away and yeah, I'm pretty sure she's a throw away because there's a dead end road behind my house and people dump their unwanted cats there all the time. They show up on my back deck and scratch at the door meowing to come in all the time. This girl is particularly pretty with pure white fur and blue eyes. She's been fixed and it's obvious by her hanging boobies that she's had at least one litter before being fixed. But the most puzzling part of her being dumped to me is that she is just the sweetest most friendly kitty I've seen. She now sleeps with the hubby and I and has made our bedroom her chief hangout. Yeah, my other two cats are pretty bitter and jealous about her being here now. Usualy I can find a stray a home but this one I haven't been so lucky. She's here to stay now.

    I just don't understand peoples cruelty to someone, human or animal, that loves them.

    Exactly. This cannot be good for the poor animal's heart. Maybe someone should stick the owner in a cage and start fattening him up, like the witch did in Hansel and Gretel.

    My cat doesn't really even eat that much, and he seems to exercise. I try to motivate him by dangling stuff and such, but he doesn't get too enthused.

    Mine's actually big in general. He's not that much overweight, when you consider his size. His skeletal structure is larger than most.
