he most of liked it cause nobody would pick him up! I know if my cat was that heavy she would love it!
It's really too heavy. You can see how girthy he was. Not healthy. Adorable, yes -- doesn't everyone love roly-poly kittehs? But it's not good for them any more than letting kids get fat is good for them. It's funny, because when he first turned up in our yard, he was such a scrawny little kitten, I thought he was a girl, and named him that way. When we took him for his first vet visit, we found out he was male, so Pepita became Nicolas.

Gee, I feel so.......inadequate. Burdock only weighs in at 17 poundsView attachment 376263But you should see him at full gallop, upsetting cat trees when he leaps into them.
Well, his doctor might say he could stand to lose a few ounces...but he's nowhere near as round as Nicolas. I'd call him "pleasingly plump" and yeah, when the big ones get going, they can really shake the house!:insertevillaugh:

Burdock has always been big, even as a kitten. That tube he is perched on measures 16in. in length, and he overhangs it at both ends. The funny thing is that Stretch is as large-framed, but he is rail-thin, going about 12 pounds. Both of them had the same mother, too.

That happens in families. You can read about biological sisters whose DNA shows different origins! All kinds of things are possible because truly, each one of us is unique.
