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!
