Britain’s fattest cat takes part in slimming contest

CATBritain’s fattest cat, which weighs 2st 2lb (approximately 13.6 Kgs), has been entered in a slimming contest in a bid to save his life.


The fluffy moggy, named Ulric, tips the scales at 2st 2lb – the same weight as a three-year-old child – and has been forced to take part in the animal charity PDSA’s Pet Fit Club in a bid to save his life and slim down his enormous waistline.


The seven-year-old ginger tom has piled on the pounds since indulging in too many calorific treats and refusing to exercise, which is now restricting him from jumping like a normal feline.


His owner, Jan Mitchell, 68, said: “I realised he had some weight behind him when I was in the sitting room and the door came flying open from where he had pushed it.


“He is lovely but he’s greedy and lazy. He doesn’t exercise. I’ve tried a lead but I just end up dragging him along.”


Stella Hughes, of the PDSA, said: “We’re confident Ulric will have a slimline figure and new lease of life by the end of the contest.”
