Big Cat

My mom called and asked if I saw the big cat on TV. She said it weighed around 33lbs. Did anyone else see this? She said it was from Japan.

www.coonceit.com claims that one of their maine coon weighs at 31 pounds, by lookin' at the picture, it sure does look bigger than a normal full grown male maine coon. Its in the boys section and is called Big Country.

I saw video of the cat on http://www.nbc17.com/news/7261897/detai ... i&psp=news

I really think it looks like abuse.

Check out the video and tell me what you think. Poor fat kitty!

I agree and think that its some sort of abuse for that cat.

I mean...there can be some cats that are just big...like bigger cats, and some that are a little overweight. My cat Cleo is 13lbs and a little chubby. But at 33lbs...thats not healthy either way. That cat looks like it cant even do most of the stuff a regular healthy cat can.

Kitten OBesity= range of injuries and illness. Overweight cats are more prone to hip dysplasia, heart failure. That cat is severely abused, peroid.

Read in book saying that when cats are 8 years and older, the diet needs to be changed. Im sure it'll be traumatic for the cat.

Ugh, I agree with everyone else...abuse. That weight should have stopped a long time ago, poor cat.

Maine Coon cats can get to be as large as small dogs (terrier size) and that is healthy for the breed. 33 lbs is believable. At my old organization Mrs. Muffin weighed 31 pounds and was put on a diet and now weighs only 23 lbs. She looks a lot better. It was hard to lift her into the cat carrier. She found a home with a little old lady so she didn't have to move too much.
