Pictures Of Huge Tabby Cat Built Like A Pitbull Dog

This is a very strange looking domestic cat. He’s built like a pitbull dog. Or a heavyweight boxer if you want to compare him with humans.

I’m not sure whether this is fat due to obesity or muscle due to an anatomical anomaly. Or perhaps the owner has been feeding him steroids! Something very strange is going on. I have never seen a body conformation of a domestic cat like this before. On the face of it, it does not look like the cat is obese but the more I look at him the more I believe that this is about obesity. It is perhaps a combination of obesity and a very large tabby cat but I don’t believe he is all muscle.

The most notable feature of this tabby cat is the width of his shoulders and body in general. I have never seen a cat anywhere near as “square” as this before.

He is called “Buff Cat”. The implication is that he is all muscle. I’m not so sure. He is another internet cat celebrity.

Hi, I'm a 71-year-old retired solicitor (attorney in the US). Before qualifying I worked in many jobs including professional photography. I have a girlfriend, Michelle. I love nature, cats and all animals. I am concerned about their welfare.

  • I hope to hell that bulk is not due to steroids the damage anabolics do is permanent. If he's just unusually bulky with muscle and fat, then some weight loss is a good idea. If he got like that on steroids oh poor puss!

    • He looks very strange. It makes me wonder if the owner has fed him steroids. I am probably way off the mark.

  • Frog has this bulldog build. She's not fat but heavier than the other cats. As to agility she's amazing in her ability to jump climb and run. She had this build from very early on. The cat in the picture appears to be morbidly obese as well as muscular. Makes you wonder what's going on in that home and what blood work on this cat would show

  • He has a brisk gait, but I doubt he could run, climb or jump. If he can't do any "cat" things I wouldn't call him healthy. I don't know... he's not normal, and there's no information about him.

    • You think like me on this one. His body shape is peculiar. There is something strange about it. I'd love to have more info. I have tried to find more info but the trail runs dry.

  • I hope that this cat's size, whether obese or on steriods, won't encourage people to fatten their cat for 15 minutes of fame.

    I wonder who the vet is, and the back story details on the cat. There must be some negative affect on the joints. I doubt if this cat was born this way.
