45 lb. Cat Utterly Fails to Terrorize Small Georgia Town
The Atlanta NBC affiliate reports:
"Sam looks like a footstool, or maybe a large pillow, but in reality, Sam is a living, breathing cat. One who happens to be more than just a little bit fat.Slow metabolism, my foot. I got $5 that says Paul is feeding Sam deep-fried twinkies when nobody's looking.
Owner Paul Webster says he has watched his 9-year-old feline grow from a tiny kitten to a 45-pound wonder. In fact, Webster says, Sam is 32 inches long and 34 inches around.
According to his veterinarian, despite Sam’s heft, he’s healthy.
“He’s not overfed. He gets one cup of dry kibble a day. He’s allowed to have two, but he just has one,” Webster said.
And occasionally, Sam gets canned food as a special treat. Perhaps he has a slow metabolism."
