World's biggest cat

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Has anyone seen the size of this cat? I'm not sure if this link worked or not, so you might have to type the address below into the address box and hit search.

Isn't it amazing?

I have seen that before! I wonder if it's real? Its the only "big cat" picture I've ever seen that looks like it is for real. Very pretty cat either way!

What a gorgeous hunk of a cat! The pic looks authentic to me! Just check out that big guys relaxed hind legs - but the size of him; good thing he's obviously a gentle cat

How is she holding him! I have trouble holding my 17 pound kitty. He must weigh a lot!

Bikeman, what makes you think that it is fake? If it's not fake he's huge... and not fat huge, just big in general!

Seen this same photo elsewhere before. Funny how if you google fake cat photo, this same photo comes up.

It could be that this photo has been the subject of millions of internet chain email for the past year or so.

It could be the striking resemblance to this hoax in 2000.

"How to" fake photos such as this have been up for years.

And this here, at an Urban Legends page. And the supporting photo "evidence" and story does not convice me in the slightest, nor do the overwhelming votes in the poll.

Try visiting snopes.com. http://www.snopes.com/photos/animals/bigcat2.asp#photo4 The cat was only 24 pounds at the time of the photo. The hair makes him look bigger than he really is.

I saw a BIG fat cat on the news the other night! It was from Japan.

...and yet, nobody knows where the photo came from. That's kinda fishy, isn't it?

EDIT
OK, it seems to be someone named Martha. Martha might only weigh in at 80 pounds herself, so this only looks like a bigger cat than it really is. The fur adds to that illusion.

NO GIANT CAT.

I saw one also on the news yesterday that was in China or Japan, he weighed 30 lbs, but this cat looked like someone blew him up, they were saying it eats 30 pounds of pork and chicken a day, OMG I felt so sorry for that cat, he seemed like he just wanted to lay on his side. They had to boot him up on the bed, I told my hubby my gads there killing that cat with all that food, he looked like he couldn't hardely breath.. I saw it online also. Anyone else see it?

I have seen that one before - and after having an 8.96kg (20lb) cat, I can't see how anyone could hold them like that!! Hopefully, this is a link to the cat in China - poor thing was 33lb, can't imagine how you can claim the cat to be healthy

Bless his heart! That poor cat in China looks pitiful! He can't even get around by himself, so that right there seems to point that he's not healthy
