#9 looks like my Buster. The vet kept telling me to put him on a diet but he wouldnt eat diet cat food and if his bowl didnt have dry cat food in it he would drive ya nuts meowing.

He lived to be 13...he was a fat happy cat!

Oh my.  --Snowball, Riley, Kailee and Mikesch are huge!    :o

Munchkin looks like mine (same color), but much fatter

I'm glad the Guiness Book of Records stopped accepting applications for fattest cat ever.

My allergies just got flaired up looking these..  Are they suppose to be that big??  Is this pleasant for your cat to have the upperhand in a fight over his differences in opinion in food you feed him/her?? ;)

I've seen a few cats that big in my life.  Once, while I was visiting a elderly friend, her equally-elderly best friend, who is Korean, said "Carmen!  Why that cat so big?  You no feed that cat--one year!"

Holy Cow - literally!

Poor Tiddles. He ate himself to death.

My late cat Agathy was never large. She was petite and refused to eat table food. Only certain cat foods and none could have any seafood or fish or she would just turn her nose up at it.

I miss Agatha. She was only 17 when her kidneys failed.

Personally...I wouldn't feed my cat anything but cat food.  I think when you start giving them human food...it raiises the culinary bar...and before you know it...they're turning up their little noses at cat food...'cause they know they can cut a better deal.

I knew this guy where I used to live that had a beautiful seal point lynx Javanese cat.  It got to where it would only eat "human" tuna...or those little canned-type shrimp.  For dessert it wanted whipped cream.  The poor thing's stomach almost dragged on the floor after several years of this.
