I have a big surprise for you, but first you have to look at the size of this cat
When I got my brother this kitten from Beryl all those years ago I had no idea that he was part cat and part armoured personnel carrier. He's named after Bobby Hill, but if he were my cat I'd change his name to Refrigerator. I haven't seen Bobby in four or five years, and suddenly my own obese cat looks kind of small to me.
What's that? He doesn't look so big? Check it out, with chubby girl for scale:
If I stretch my leg out next to him, he reaches from my knee to the bottom of my heel, not counting his tail (and look, NWJR, I'm smiling just for you).

OMG, I laughed out loud at "part armoured personnel carrier." What a great description for a big kitty!
My cat Linus is actually the same length (my knee to heel, not counting tail), but not as imposing ;).

I love Bobby! I hope he's not a lap cat though.

You ARE smiling! That explains the disturbance I felt in the force yesterday...
Nice pussy, btw.

You look lovely and so does the fridge. Still haven't seen your star tattoo in person yet. When I come home for a visit I'm going to Tim Reid for an update, you should come with me.

heh - now THAT's a cat! Looks like my Monty (who I just call Tank now)...

Ha! That surely is a big cat. Why does it seem that many of the big cats are orange tabbies? We are currently "growing" one of those ourselves. Right now he's still a kitten and all skinny rabbit legs and long torso.

We should get him together with my dog who is half pony and start a kinda "freakily oversized pet" thang.
Who is sad no-one has stooped to the "big pussy" joke. Or doesn't that one cross the pond?

Oh shit! So pissed now (it's medicinal - I've the mother of all toothaches) I didn't even SEE the big pussy line - sorry. I'll be sober soon......

I thought my cat Mashu was huge and overweight until I took her to the Vet. He has a cat that lives at the office who weighs twenty-five pounds. Twenty-five pounds! Bobby doesn't look so big to me!

In honor of one of Insubordiknit's podcast's -- that's an assload of cat!

What chubby? You look healthy, you look rel. happy, you look great, so what's with that chubby crap?
Bobby is a fine name for a fine cat.
