Kitten Found On Roadside Surprises Hoomins With Extreme Fluffiness

This poor kitten was near death when he was found on roadside by a caring Florida family. They adopted him and nursed him back to health. Much to their surprise, he turned into such a huge fur-ball that they even created an Instagram account for him to share his happy moments. “Silas before and after!” Wrote the family on Instagram. “He was left on the side of the road, and near death. We gave him a forever home.” They never expected this little guy to turn out like this!

Perhaps he's been a wee bit over-fed? I'm just saying . . .

He may be very well fed, but he's not obese. He looks maybe a little overweight, but nothing crucial. IMO. He just looks like a big happy boy.

White cats with blue eyes have a high chance of being deaf (60-80%). White cats without blue eyes have a higher chance than normal but it's only 10-20%. Source: http://icatcare.org/advice/cat-health/inherited-deafness-white-cats

HOOMINS? WTF IS THAT?! Please don't tell me that's slang for humans.

Sadly I think it is. It's some kind of internet thing: when you go on internet, be stupid as an illiterate, spit on proper langage and vocabulary and invent new words.

It is wonderful to save an animal but it looks overfed, which will lead to trouble in his joints, and at risk of heart disease. Sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind and quickly put him on a sensible diet.

AlisonWainwright

If he's an outdoors cat and likes sunbathing, please put baby's suncream on his ears! Hopefully his owners and most white cat owners know this nowadays. (Yes, they'll probably try and lick it off)

does need to lose a few pounds... just change to lower calorie food would be helpful :)

How do you know he's not just so fluffy he looks a bit tubby? Also, male cats can weigh anywhere between 9-11lbs fully grown.

that poor baby is overweight. that is more than fluffiness and it is very unhealthy for the cat. 2 extra pounds on a cat can mean about 2 years shorter a life. or more.
