The manager of the rescue centre Paisley was handed into says the cat’s size ‘took her breath away’
A tubby tabby dubbed Britain’s fattest cat has been put on a strict diet after leaving staff at a rescue centre ‘lost for words’ when she was handed in.
Four-year-old Paisley weighs in at a whopping 1st 7lbs (9.5kg), double the weight of a healthy cat, and went into a rescue home when her owner couldn’t cope anymore.
Staff at Cats Protection’s National Cat Adoption Centre in West Sussex even have to help her clean herself as she has become to big to manage it herself.
It’s thought porky Paisley’s massive bulk comes from being overfed by her previous owner, combined with a lack of exercise and poor diet, which saw her weight skyrocket.
