The Secret Photostream of Flabby Tabby

30 pound catWhen a 30 pound cat showed up at the Mohawk and Hudson River Humane Society last week, the inevitable question was: who is this guy? And what has he been doing to get that... rotund?

The answer: livin' large. After the jump, a handful of photos from The Secret Photostream of Flabby Tabby.

Be sure to read the note at the bottom.

Important: As the humane society noted, the Flabby Tabby almost surely has a home. If you know who this cat belongs to, please contact the Mohawk and Hudson River Humane Society (518-434-8128) so they get can him back to his people.

Update: He's been adopted -- to a family that's going to put him on a diet. [WTEN] [CBS6]

Too funny!!!! We love fat tabbys at our house. If she doesn't have a home - I'll go get her!

How many Cornings is that cat?

A cat that zaftig is, shall we say, unlikely to exist in the wild.

The possibility exists that he ate his human.

Just sayin'.

So brilliant. I am especially a fan of meeting at the Capitol. I would feel so much more confident with the government of this state if an overweight cat was presiding!

I love how perturbed Jennings looks while the cat is just thrilled to jump into the photo.

Flabby: "I CAN HAZ PH0T0 WIF JERRRRY?!?!"
Jennings: *sigh" "Fine..."

Did this kitty of unusual size eat a rodent of unusual size?

So that's what caused the fire drill this morning at the tower! I was wondering!

Bob: But ROUS's? I don't think they really exist. :)

Aawww, King Kong Kitteh!

Kurvery Kreme Kitty is my favorite, though.

It's like a kitty tour of Albany! I'm going to look at this throughout the day so I can keep giggling.

Moar plz kthx.

I am really laughing out loud.

Haha that's great. I love it. I hope he finds his home soon!

hahahahaa yeeessssss!!!

LOVE nomming on The Egg!!1

Almost (and I say again - almost!) as good as the moshgirl photoshop bonanza of 2004.

I wonder how can a cat be so big?
My schnauzer is 28 pounds and he should be a "miniature"!!!!
Even so, how could the owners leave him? It is like leaving your baby! Shame on them!

OMG! I just laughed so hard I nearly shook my monitor off the desk. Thank you x infinity for giving in to temptation - it was time well spent. This MADE. MY. DAY! (aside from your awesome participation in the NYCRAMA luncheon panel on blogging today, that is.)

I look at these and I laugh some more. What do you think of turning them into a set of postcards for sale? They would be great additions to the canon of Albany memorabilia.

Thanks for posting this again. These pictures are hysterical!

My daughter just started private swim lessons at Ciccotti Center in Colonie. She has only been to two but so far she loves it. They also seem to be flexible with scheduling for the private lessons - doesn't need to be at a set day and time each week.

Swim lessons for young children?
