10 days until

So for those who have been following, today is 10 days until...

Im still waiting for the unusual topic for someone to bring up ask, but here is something I found a little bit...umm Unusual for 10 days until...

BERLIN - An obese German cat six times the normal weight has gone on a hunger strike at a Berlin animal shelter after being taken from his owner who had fed him four lbs of mince daily, Bild newspaper reported on Saturday.

Mikesch, weighing nearly 41 lbs, was brought to the animal shelter on April 1 and was so overweight he could not take more than four steps without becoming exhausted. His elderly owner was at the same time taken to a nursing home.

Shelter officials said six-year-old Mikesch is so fat he cannot clean himself and suffers from heart trouble. They said he felt lost without his meat-feeding owner and stopped eating altogether when he was put on a diet to gradually lose weight.

A shelter worker will take Mikesch home with her for 10 days to help get his appetite back, shelter head Carola Ruff said.

"The cat had a good night in her flat on the first night and that's giving us hope his condition will improve," Ruff said.

Cats usually weigh between six and 12 lbs and eat no more than about 10 ounces of food each day, vets say.....

So i went ahead and found out that Mikesh from German to English means Mike...for those who are old enough would remember the old "Life Cereal" Commercial. Mikey likes it ! He really likes it! Well, I suppose this brings a whole new meaning to this fraze.

If this cat wasn't called Mikesh(Mike) what would you name him ?

The owner was taken to a nursing home, If he was just a little bit younger what would his actual punishment be, or do you suppose It was ok to get more full than the thanksgiving turkey ?

No name that seems to fit better than Garfield. Substitute lasagna for the mince and Jim Davis' creation lives.

I had an all black cat that weighed 20 pounds. She was active, HUGE, but in no way was she out of shape or unhealthy.

I have an orange tabby that was pushing 25 pounds and starting to look like a basketball with legs. He's been on diet cat food for a couple years and is closer to 20 pounds now. At the most he should lose 2 more pounds, he's just a huge cat.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

frbnkslady- lol I never seen anything that big, i assume since he is active and healthy, he is very affectionate as well ?

My mom has a 300 ib golden lab, yet he is SOOOOOOOOOoooooo active, that all that fat turned to muscle, so he actually looks like a miniture being so tall and muscular (and likes to lick your face if your to close)
