The never-ending debate about whether being a cat or dog person is better has finally come to an end, at least for now. Once you lay your eyes on Samson, there’s no going back. Samson is one of the largest cats in the world, weighing in at a whopping 28-pounds. That’s right, he weighs almost four times more than the average household cat. But don’t fret, Samson is a healthy 4-year-old kitty.
The white-and-brown-furred cat has been gaining attention all over social media. People can’t get enough of him, including myself. His owners playfully named his personal Instagram, Catstradamus, after a Pokémon that shares similar characteristics with the feline. Both are large, Samson measure four feet in length and his Instagram has 50.3K followers.
Despite his large size, Samson is like any regular house cat — playful, a natural model and he loves to cuddle. It’s also natural for people to worry about this large cat’s health. There’s always the concern of overweight cats developing diabetes that may affect them living a full life. But Samson’s owners have done a great job taking care of him and have confirmed he’s a healthy ball of fur. His BMI has been given the thumbs up by several certified vets.
So we can all go ahead and admire this beautiful creature without any fear. This handsome feline lives in New York City and in case any of us ever get lucky enough to meet Samson in-person, we should start lifting weights to make sure we can pick him up.
