A cat from Sheffield, who is so fat she can’t fit in her cat carrier, has reached the finals of the UK’s largest pet slimming competition.
The mega moggy, hoping to lead the way for millions of overweight pets across Britain, has been selected to compete against 12 other fat pets – including dogs, cats and even a rabbit.
Tipping the scales at 1st 3lb (7.5kg), Puff has eaten her way to becoming 50 per cent overweight (11lb).
The oversized white and cream kitty, who will pinch fish food from the tank if given the chance, was adopted by owner Marie Clair just over a year ago. When Marie collected her she was amazed by her sheer bulk.
For the last 12 months Marie has kept Puff on a strict diet with the help of the PDSA Pet Fit Club, which has helped her shed around 5lb. But she still has a long way to go to reach her ideal weight of 11lb (5kg).
