Katy, a five-year-old Siamese from the town of Asbest in the Ural mountains, weighs in at 23 kilograms (50 pounds) - slightly more than the average six-year-old boy

I used to have a cat that weighed just over 30lbs, and was the size of a small dog. 50lbs, I'd be afraid of that thing.

His child, Spanky, weighs about 20 lbs himself, but had a catnip addict for a mother.

heh my good friend has a cat of about 18 lbs. And at 18 lbs, it is pretty immobile. When it lays down, the fat rolls out from its sides like a carpet. lol.

I sent an email to PETA about it, hoping maybe they would know of an organization who could help this cat. What these people are doing is absolutely cruel and the cat is suffering tremendously. Not only is she *extremely* overweight, but they also have her on hormones? What the f*ck? Anyhow, if this bothers any of you as much as it bothers me, please feel free to email PETA about it at: info@peta.org

Thanks.

Well, just so noone tries to take me to court, my cats I was reffering to were mixed with a wild cat, which was huge. The larger one actually put the smackdown a dog trespassing in our yard once, so it was no slouch.

I agree on the note about people feeding there cats so they can barely move, it is gross, to say the least.
