Meet Miu the Heaviest Cat in the World
"The world`s heaviest cat title reportedly belongs to a 17.5-kg male named Elvis in Germany.
But Miu, a Vietnamese cat in the northern province of Nam Dinh, should be given the title because he now weighs around 20 kilograms.
Tran Thi Nga, 75, has become famous in the neighborhood thanks to her pet, news website Vietnamnet reported.
Nga bought the cat eight years ago. As a cat trader went passed her house, she spotted the lovely cat with black and white hair."
It`s a miracle that this Vietnamese kitty hasn`t ended up on a dinner table, not as a pampered guest, but as the main course.
Miu is in good hands; her 75-year-old owner dotes on him, as evidenced by his tremendous heft.
Nga says her adorable cat is in perfect health, I`m not going to disagree with her, my 25-pound feline, Tico, is also in perfect health. Tico can sprint from my living room to my kitchen in a second when he hears me opening a can of tuna fish.
