You gotta see this one!

If you ever thought your cat was big...

Thanks Alva (Askahomeopath) for this picture! It's awesome!

That HAS to be computer augmented!!! There is NO way that can be real. I mean, that big furball, if it is real, would crush my chest if he did as Socrates does in the mornings.

"Oh my God, I can't breathe! Get off!"

But, can you imaging how cuddly that would be to have? I'd have to get a king size bed so there'd be enough room!

And the food? My God, that thing could eat a horse! Literally!

Oh, but imagine how enormously LOUD that purr would be. I mean, a cats purr is soothing and helps me sleep, but this cat?! The walls would have to be reinforced and earthquake proof foundation installed!

But, seriously, I would just LOVE to have a cat that big. Of course, you couldn't let this big thing knead on you, otherwise you'd have to call 911 to have your body stitched back together!

I suspect the same - Photoshop is a wonderful software for picture manipulation

I seriously do not believe that that is for real....I mean how the hell can that cat do anything for himself - surely if a cat that size does exist his little legs would be shot carrying that may body around LOL

Someone sent that to me in e mail ahwile back. I didn't think it was real either. I can see maybe a cat with a wild background but the colors are too much like a domestic.

You know, I saw on the news awhile back about the world's largest cat. His paws were the size of an adult human's hand (can't remember if it was a man or woman's hand). It was this huge yellow tabby.

I found this. But it's not the same cat I saw on the news. The tabby was American.

Got that one in an email too. I figured the picture was doctored too.

I see that you guys saw that picture!
A friend sent the whole article. As far as the article went, they say this cat is real, and that it kills and eats Small neighborhood dogs and racoons!
I suspect that somewhere it got crossed up with a Bobcat or something like that, there are many instances of Females in Heat getting with a male Bobcat and vice versa.
I didn't doctor the picture, I just gave it to Anne because I thought you guys would enjoy seeing it.
Just think of the LITTER PAN!!!!
Like cleaning up after a Saint Benard EK!

I too had received this picture in an e-mail awhile back, and wondered if it had been doctored. If it is real, then yikes!!! I would hate to have it mad at me!! And the poor neighborhood dogs!!!!!!! And if it is a male, pardon me for saying so....but the poor females it comes across!!! YIKES!

I think I can see now that its been meddled with.

Have a good look at the man's fingers - they are unnaturally elongated. They were probably made bigger when the cat part was...

now here's a big kitty:

post #13 of 24
Here is the article that goes along with the picture that Askahomeopath sent...

Rodger Degagne a former employee with AECL in Chalk River may be embarking on a new career as Feline Breeder. Relaxing in his spacious home on the shores of the Ottawa River, Mr. Degagne recalls how 15 years ago he befriended two stray young cats on the old AECL research facility at
Chalk River. The kittens had appeared in late summer and apparently had gotten under a security fence around the old labs abandoned since the late 50's. With the help of his tuna sandwich, Mr. Degagne was able to coax the kitties close enough so that he could pick them up. A self described
animal lover he did not want to place the kittens in the local Human Society. In this largely rural area, cats of all stripes and age largely go unwanted and are humanely disposed of after a few days. Later that evening his wife Louise and their two children, Nicole and Kelly came to a family decision to keep the kittens which they named Lost and Found. Lost turned out to be female and Found a male. When nature finally took its course a litter of kittens was born 6 years later. One of the litter was a big white female with a unique black markings on her side and tail. Something about the kitten captured the hearts of the family and while her siblings eventually found homes elsewhere, Snowball stayed with the Degagne's. While Lost and Found are no longer with us, their progeny live on.
In her 9 years Snowball's size has seemed to snowball. Put simply Snowball is no ordinary cat, she measures 69 inches from nose to tail and weighs in at 87Lbs. "She started out a big kitty and she just seemed to keep growing. She
always meowed for more food, and would climb up on the counter to eat food which I forgot to cover. Chicken is her favorite, once I left a cooked chicken on the table that I was going to use for a boat picnic, an hour later the chicken was gone." Louise said. "We knew that Snowball
wasn't your average cat when the neighbor's German Shepherd ran yelping away from his first encounter with her. She just isn't afraid of any animals. After we found a half eaten raccoon out by the garage we decided that maybe Snowball should be kept fenced in. We soon discovered that while we can keep Snowball in the yard we couldn't keep raccoons from Snowball. At least it kept the food bills
down" Rodger laughed "Like all female cats she is very territorial, but with us she is just a big ole kitten" he said. So what does a 87 pound cat eat? "Snowball goes through about 3 lbs. of cat food a day, along with cooked chicken, supplemented with deer and moose that Rodger hunts in the fall." "She likes Pike a lot, so I don't through them back any more". Snowball often accompanies Rodger
fishing on the Ottawa, eagerly peering over the side of the boat as soon as his line goes tight. So what do the Degagne's attribute Snowballs size to? Rodger says "Well
the vet thinks it could be her thyroid, but she isn't fat, she's just a real big cat. I think maybe her parents got into something at Chalk River that they shouldn't have."

I had misplaced that article!
I have no idea whether it is real or not, but the man's fingers Do look a tad long!
Hahaha, that kitty eating a car is so cute too!!!
How funny!!!
Well, if it is fake, it is funny, and laughing is sorely needed right now, don't you think?
post #15 of 24
Thank you so much, swalker! I was just about to ask if anyone had the article :icecream:
post #16 of 24
No problem! I never noticed before, but the guys fingers are really long.

Blue, how funny that picture of the giant cat :laughing:
post #17 of 24
Anne, you are right, his fingers about twice as long as they should be...as is the cat I suppose!
post #18 of 24
Golly, that guy in the photograph must have huge arms and a strong back to hold such a load in an obviously-relaxed manner. I like Blue's cat, though!

post #19 of 24
It just can't be real, the picture has to be doctored! You can do sooooo many things with a computer these days
post #20 of 24
you know, from what i heard about that photo was that it was done by
the people at www.rotten.com and it was meant as a joke, a really horrible,
gross joke, like f&@*ing bonsai kitty

the story is, an interviewer from rotten.com goes to that guys farm (the guy in the photo)
because apparently the guy has a cat farm, and has hundreds & hundreds of cats
running around.

he raises them like they were cattle, and fattens them up, and eats them

(that's why they made the cat in the photo so fat)

it is doctored.

anyway, it was apparently just a joke, but - still, very disturbing,
i hate seeing that photo, every time i see it, i am just creeped right out
and feel nausous.

even though it was meant as a joke, i think it's sick, makes me so angry.
what a horrible, sick sense of humour you'd have to have to think that's funny.

eweeeee ! That is gross!

I didn't know that! But apparently someone made into another (nicer) practical joke.
post #22 of 24
That's sick it really it! Someone should stop the guy from raising cats that way. Did I read that right---he eats them???
post #23 of 24

no, he doesnt eat them, it was just a sick joke. it isnt real.
