WOLFIE

THIS IS WOLFIE. AS FAR AS WE KNOW HE HIS A AMERICAN DOMESTIC SHORTHAIR. HE IS A TWO YEAR OLD NEUTERED MALE. I HAVE HAD HIM SINCE HE WAS APPROXIMATELY 4 WEEKS OLD AND RESCUED FROM A HEAVILY FORESTED AREA.

HE STRETCHES OUT TO ABOUT 32 INCHES AND WEIGHS IN AT ABOUT 30 POUNDS OR SO. HE SHARES HIS HOME WITH FOUR OTHER CATS. HE IS VERY LOVING, CUDDLY, AND AFFECTIONATE. HE IS MY BEST BUD AND BIGGEST BABY...


Hi GENNISE & LOREN..Thanks for showing us Big Wolfie looking very laid back, relaxed and well loved! He is using his cat buddy as a pillow it seems.

I moved this to the largest domestic cat breed page as although he is not a specific breed of cat he is certainly in that bracket that makes him one of the largest....

WE ARE SLIGHTLY OFFENDED BY THE LAST COMMENT POSTED QUESTIONING OUR LOVE FOR WOLFIE! THAT,S LIKE ASKING IF YOU LOVE YOUR SPOUSE BECAUSE HE OR SHE MAY BE OVERWEIGHT!Wolfie is very loved. Thats why we are working with his vet to get his weight down. We have been successful so far. Losing approximately 1lb per month.

Thank you for your interest in Wolfie. Wolfie doesnt have a passport and is not allowed out of our eyesight.Regretfully we know of no one who has a large feline such as WOlfie. He is rather unique in his own right. Please check with your local humane society or animal rescue association. There are many animals needing forever homes. I highly encourage you look into this.

Thank you veryu much,

Loren,Genn,& Wolfie

by: Finn Frode, Denmark

Hi Gennise & Loren. Great shoot - looks like a real nice cat. And he is indeed a big baby, although the angle makes it a bit difficult to see his size from the picture.

30 pounds you say? Had he been 10 years old or more, I'd say let him enjoy his eating, but for a two year old it's probably a bit too much if you want to keep him healthy for many years.

This of course can not be judged from a picture alone, but tough as it is - a diet may be needed. Sorry Wolfie. 😉

This is the largest photo of any cat that i have seen, barring the "Guiness Bokk of World records" fattest cat ,"Himmy".

What is the reason for this feak growth?

  1. Hi, we have a huge house cat, too, supposedly an American shorthair, according to the Humane Society that we got him from circa 7 years ago. He and our other much smaller cat (which we also got from the Humane Society) are about the same in age, but the American shorthair weighs around 30 pounds, and the other, a tabby, weighs about half of that. They are both fed the same food, yet one cat ended up much bigger than the other. I go out of my way to find good quality cat food for them, and usually buy grain-free/gluten-free cat food for them, but for some reason, one cat is still twice the size of the other. We live in an apartment and can’t let the cats out for exercise, so I know that bit certainly does not help in giving them more exercise opportunities and hampers their ability to keep their weight down. That said, perhaps certain breeds of cats can tend to grow bigger at a faster rate without adequate exercise. I find it amazing that we can have two cats who are close in age, and one is twice the weight of the other, and they both eat and drink from the same dishes.

    • That is interesting. Is the 30 pounder eating more? Or is it due to a medical condition of some sort? Or a metabolism thing of some sort? Perhaps the American Shorthair has a very slow metabolism and eats a bit more which leads to a slow build up of weight. I presume he is very overweight by the way or very big.

  2. wolfie passed away at 6 pm august 2,2016. he died from calais effussion. the human version of pleurisy. there is no rhyme or reason for this illness. worst of all no cure or fix. at the time of his death wolfie had lost lots of weight, he was down to 22 lbs. after having his sack around the lungs drained of fluid approx. 5 times and on thursday july 28 after going into resipitory arrest and flat lining , the vets doing everything to bring him back, we decided the most compasionate and humane thing to do was if this accured again was to put him down. the thing with this disease or illness is the risk of infection goes up every time fluid has to be drawn. so on thursday the vet got one cup plus two tablesppons of fluid and by tuesday it had came back and was worse. wolfie was bigger than life and everyone who ever met him fell in love and even those who had never met him had a fondness for him. he was my heart and my life and i will for ever miss him…. below is a email i recieved from his doctor….
    To: gennise hathaway
    I’ve been in contact with Alycia all day long. She was worried that she was calling it too soon, but I told her that he didn’t need to go through another episode of respiratory arrest, it’s too rough. She had him in the doctor’s office where he could hang out, get petted and not be stuck in a cage. I wish we could have done more for him, but it just wasn’t gonna happen. Drive safe….
