Biggest Cat In theNewk?

Just like with many of the news items we get
around here, we got this story from a reader email.

Dear Newk,

You gotta see the size of my friend's cat. The thing is huge.

We got the contact info, and nicely asked for some photos,
and general large cat info.

Here is what we got...

Meet Simba
(Notice how he was photographed by a rather large
remote control, so you could get a better feel for his size?)

They tried posing him near a Rosa's sausage pizza, but he ate it.

His life started in North Carolina, where someone left
him on the side of the road.

He was found, and taken to a vet, where he was later
adopted by his current family.

He is known by a few different names.
One of them being OCDC.
(Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Cat)
"If you pet his butt, by his tail, he will automatically
start licking (cleaning) himself."

His hobby...go figure, is cleaning himself.

When Simba is ready for his breakfast (24 hrs a day)
he jumps in bed with his owner and begins the double
wake up call of purring and kneading.

He will actually knead directly on the bladder region,
to cause his human the feeling that they must urinate.
Thus, waking them up.

And if all that doesn't work, he just attacks her feet
like a spider monkey.

So how much does Simba weigh?

He comes in at a healthy 20 lbs.

Here are some other things that weigh 20 pounds:

2 sacks of potatoes
A car tire
A portable karaoke machine
80 sticks of butter
25 - 20oz bottles of Pepsi

(That may look like an ottoman, but it's actually
a refrigerator box.)

Editor's Note:
If the Valley News Dispatch runs a similar piece about this subject within the next week, something is fishy.


And here is your Newk Weekend Weather Report:

"Things are starting to look up."
