Have you met Elvis? No, not the King Elvis, but he is as famous as the King was. He may not be a rock star, but he is also unique: He is the heaviest cat in the world!
Sometimes we can feed our cats a little too much, and that is not so bad. But obesity in cats is a real thing, and even though the world’s heaviest cat looks so chubby and cute, Elvis faces problems such as obesity and diabetes. Cat owners, this one is especially for you!
1. Elvis can be one of the heaviest cats in the whole world, he is really overweight and he weighs 38.5 lb (17.5 kg) – the same weight as a healthy three-year old boy. His face tells it all, clearly he doesn’t like to be on scales!
2.Even though this 7 years-old “big” ball of fur is undeniably looks so cute, he actually suffers from many diseases and health problems like diabetes.
3.That is why he has a special diet because of his condition, so a salad for Elvis!
4. But diet isn’t the saddest part for Elvis. He has two take two insulin shots EVERY. DAY. 🙁
5.The diet and insulin shots are necessary for Elvis to wander around and sleep like other cats.
6.He is one of the heaviest cats in the world. Look at his belly!
7.Even though he is super-cute, it is good to remember that obesity and diabetes can cause real harm to your cats. Make sure they eat healthy foods, get enough exercise and lots of belly rubs!
