Anyone want to see what my GIANT cat does when he doesn't want his biscuits?

He broke the cupboard door, opened the box of pouches and then did this.

He had just had a sachet of food for breakfast and the purina biscuits are always down.

Clearly he had a craving. He's worse than a dog!

Aw

And you thought it was sweet didn't you?

Hurr1cane Sat 12-Jul-14 09:27:43

Yeahsmile he's a greedy one. He is strong as well.

cozietoesie Sat 12-Jul-14 09:33:46

What weight is he again? grin

He can get through foil though. You are stuffed now.

I think about 6kg but he's just giant! Tall and long like a small dog.

He's a ragdoll cat according to his previous (horrible) owners and the vets.

I know you shouldn't have favourites.... But he's just so huge and stubborn envy

cozietoesie Sat 12-Jul-14 09:52:10

He's wonderful. I bet he's a hunter as well.

Has he been wormed recently?

Floralnomad Sat 12-Jul-14 09:55:51

My mum has an indoor Ragdoll and if he doesn't get his own way he just goes and kicks all the litter out of his tray - it works a treat ,often he has 2 or 3 different choices of food out at a time just to appease the beast .

cozietoesie Sat 12-Jul-14 10:02:03

You mean she gives in?

Floralnomad Sat 12-Jul-14 10:06:35

He basically runs the house ,he's definitely the boss because otherwise everyone's life is hell .

I see your 6kg and raise you 9.2kg for the Charleycat! grin

It takes three people to hold her for a blood test at the vets. She is very loving though and insists on being involved in everything. DD was building her brio this week and charleycat insisted on lying across the tracks.

Yes he was wormed by the vet this week smile

He's a right stubborn creature. If he wants a fuss he jumps on the bed and stands staring at your face purring.

If you turn over he will move and stand staring at you again.

If you try to push him off the bed he pushes back hard and stares you out.

Eventually you have to give up and sit up stroking him at 3am because you'll never win the battle of wills.

Giant cat is still growing. I'm hoping he stops soon. He's over 2 years old now and should have stopped

Hurr1cane Sat 12-Jul-14 11:48:15

He's not a hunter confused he just wants to play. He's never rough with any other living things. The kitten attacks him and he just sort of pushes her off.

Apart from the other day when she was being relentless and wouldn't leave him alone, so he turned around and sat on her head shock

'He's not a hunter.....' I've heard that one many times before - on this board even. (It's usually around the time when the owner is facing off to a decapitated pigeon which has been dragged proudly through the cat flap!)

Hurr1cane Sat 12-Jul-14 15:13:12

He's not. One of them is. She's a brilliant hunter. He's slow and gentle.

I've got a ginormous cat too (7kg) and people don't believe me when I describe him and have to say 'no, he's really, really big'

Birgitz Sat 12-Jul-14 15:47:31

Haha! We've had to put a bolt on the cupboard where the cat food is kept, as our cat kept breaking in!

cozietoesie Sat 12-Jul-14 15:52:47

As another poster once said - if they develop thumbs, we're doomed!

I had a long lecture from the vet about the borderline obesity of my 7kg cat - he now has a target weight of 5kg and is on diet food. The vet actually told me I should encourage him to exercise and I fought the urge to say "Have you ever met a cat? And anyway, he's just big boned".

I'm very impressed at the cat-pouch opening. My cats are way too thick for that to even occur to them.

cozietoesie Sat 12-Jul-14 16:05:13

It is actually a problem though. My own vet would be delighted if Seniorboy put on weight, elderly as he is - at the moment, we're just hoping he doesn't lose too much.

Hurr1cane Sun 13-Jul-14 02:13:53

Awww giant cat isn't actually fat? He's just really tall and long. I have a fat cat. She's a rescue and was morbidly obese when I got her. Now she's just obese but this horrible saggy hanging skin on her that covers her feet when she sits down.

She's quite cute though

cozietoesie Sun 13-Jul-14 08:26:11

I had a fat kitten once. (Given their energy levels, you wouldn't think it was possible, would you?) It was entirely my own fault - we'd had such a ropey time with a previous boy's problems that I'd come to equate eating with health so when the kitten noshed up a storm, I just looked on benevolently and ladled out more food as asked. He was easy enough to slim down once it was established but I guess I'm just more alert to overweight issues as a result.

And some cats are just big, right enough. smile

My evilgingercat is 6.6kg, and was not considered to be at all fat by the vet on his last visit (to lance abcesses caused by fighting).

Lovely old boy would take cat food pouches, bite them and stand on them to get the gravy out. None of the current three do this, preferring to just come and wail at you if they consider there to be not enough food.

Douglas is about 6kg - he's half maine coon and just big. He's pretty slim underneath the enormous floofs.
