Mancat Monday

Hi efurrybody, Sasha here!

Today’s post isn’t about one of us.  Instead, we want to share the story of another special mancat who lives at the Moose Jaw Humane Society.  We’re not sure why he lives with a moose, but apparently it works for him.

This kitties name is Fat Boy though we think it ought to be changed.  First, Mom says it is rude to call someone fat (and she should know, MOL) and second, Fat Boy isn’t really fat anymore.

Fat Boy came to live at the shelter in 2006 because he was overeating (like that is his fault?).  He weighed in at 24 pounds at the time.  Since no one adopted him he became the resident cat.   Since he’s been under the care of the caring people at the shelter, he has slimmed down to 17 pounds.  Impressive! 

The funny part of the story is when he came to the shelter, they put him on a strict diet but after a small weight loss he put the weight back on.  That is when the workers found out Fat Boy found a way to sneak food from other kitty cages by reaching through the bars, tipping the food bowls to get extra kibble.  What a smart kitty!

If you’d like to meet Fat Boy, he can be found on the Moose Jaw Humane Society's Facebook page here.  (Picture is taken from the Facebook page)

Have a Happy Mancat Monday, efurrybody!


  1. Awwww... Fat Boy is a cutie. We're sending some extra purrs to help him find a forever home.

  2. OH I will head straight over there. I didn't want to get off track with you right here. I will go meet him next. xox

  3. He was sent to the shelter for overeating? That's it? Poor fellow. At least he found caring people there. And that is a very smart cat, to feed himself as he did. But I'll bet he's feeling better at seventeen pounds, now.

  4. Fat Boy is very adorable. And very smart and determined to get extra food like this :-)
    I saw the before and after pictures at website from the link. Very impressive how much he slimmed down! Glad he is taken care by wonderful people at the shelter!

  5. Ele é adorável... muito inteligente também hehehe

  6. Clever, Fat Boy. Very clever. Take heed, beans. If you're planning on starving a poor kittie, you have to be at least as smart as the kittie.
