Giant cat weighs 2st 4lbs – but his owners are keen for him to shift the bulge

There’s a whole lot of furball to love when it comes to massive moggy, Bronson, who weighs a staggering 2st 4lbs.

Megan, 29, and Mike Wilson, 35, adopted the tubby ginger tabby, three, after his previous owner died. He’s now on a weight-loss plan at home in Michigan, US.

Pics and video of lovable Bronson show just how large he is when compared to normal cats.

One image shows how a regular-sized cushion for a cat bed only just covers his fuzzy back, like the shell of a turtle.

Megan and Mike, who live in Ann Arbor, adopted Bronson from their local Humane Society and were told in no uncertain terms that they’d have to keep him away from the biscuit tin.

Mike, who runs a cat furniture business, said: “The Humane Society did an interview to make sure that whoever adopted him was going to take his weight loss seriously.

“We were lucky that the lady that interviewed us had heard of our company and was excited because she knew that we had experience with setting up a healthy lifestyle.”

Mike and Megan have set Bronson the goal of losing one pound a month, with their long-term hope being that he will eventually weight around 15 to 18 pounds.

Since Bronson was adopted a few months ago, the couple have changed the cat’s diet three times, focusing on grain-free wet food.

He is also played with more regularly – a decision Mike and Megan hope will keep Bronson active and help shed the pounds.

Mike added: “We really want to create something positive out of this opportunity.

“If we can be a part of making cats healthier on a large scale that would absolutely be a dream come true.”
