Massively Obese Cat Named Elvis Gets Help

A German cat named Elvis recently made world headlines by being one of the heaviest in the world.  This bulky feline weighed in at 38.5 pounds.  But after breaking the record of being one of the largest cats in the world, he started to have health issues.  Elvis started suffering from diabetes and was really making his life difficult.  The feline was also suffering for mobility issues, making it hard for him to get around.  Now Elvis is in the care of a rescue group and is getting help for his issues.  The group which is located Dortmund, Germany, is making sure that this feline is dropping some weight.

Elvis is a very sweet cat and every one at the shelter seems to love him.  One of the team members is quoted as saying this about the cat ”Elvis is a complete softy and a lovable cat, who claims his Cuddles, who is very curious about everything in his environment, is interested in everything, and is just plain lovable.” The video below will showcase the cats struggle with weight and you will get to see just how big he actually is.  It is hard to believe that a feline can grow that large, but Elvis surely did.  Many people, who see photos of the cat, don’t believe that the cat can be real and they say it must be photo shopped.  But believe it or not this cat is 100% real.

The group will continue to try and get the feline to drop some pounds and they hope his mobility will come back.  There is no word of how much weight this cat is expected to lose.  But if Elvis doesn’t lose some of his pounds, surely he will not live very long.  Being overweight this cat will continue to have more issues if something is not done.  After he has lost enough weight and is in better health, he is expected to be adopted out.  The group would like to keep the cat, but feel that the seven year old feline needs a home that he can call his very own.  For more information on Elvis, please check out the video below.
