Fat cat could be a record breaker


A Chinese man believes his two-and-a-half stone cat could be the heaviest in the world.

Xu Jirong, of Qingdao, in northern China's Shandong province, says the cat, appropriately named Chubby, has a 27ins waist - bigger than a human girl's.

"She puts on more than two pounds every year - I suspect the problem is that she much prefers pork to fish," he told Wuzhou Daily.

"She can swallow down four or five pieces of raw pork within minutes."

However, Xu says Chubby is quite a good 'watchcat'.

"She attacks any stranger who comes in the apartment by scratching them - she's really quite terrifying," he added.

However, a vet said Chubby was clearly obese and said that all pets need a healthy diet and exercise.
