Fat Cat Goes on Hunger Strike

Poor kitty!!! He's so fat

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 4.4 pounds of mince daily, Bild newspaper reported on Saturday.

Mikesch, weighing nearly 41 pounds, 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 6-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 three and six kilograms and eat no more than about 10 ounces of food each day, vets say.
