Jan Mitchell, 68, of Dorchester, England, said her Norwegian Forest cat, Ulric, is one of 21 overweight pets being put on a strict diet and exercise regimen for six months by a veterinary charity, the People's Dispensary for Sick Animals, the New York Daily News reported Friday.
"He just kept getting bigger and bigger and when he hit the two stones [28 pound] mark that's when the alarm bells started ringing," Mitchell said.
The PDSA said Ulric is the fattest cat ever to participate in their program.
