At 4 Feet Long, This Is New York's Biggest Cat
Meet Samson, New York's biggest cat - weighing 28 pounds and measuring an incredible four foot in length. The hulking feline is chauffeured around in his very own super-size carriage and spends his downtime playing fetch - just like a dog. The insatiable kitty eats six cans of food a day to feed his massive appetite.
Despite popular belief, Samson is not a cross between a bear and a Persian cat. Can you even imagine that? Actually, he is a maine Coon, a cat breed known for their hulking sizes. He is the proud owner of DJ Jonathan Zurbel, who says: "I just watched his weight start to grow and grow.
"I went to the vet and she said this is the largest cat we have in the registry. I decided to claim that name and claim that throne." Jonathan inherited the cat from his brother and dedicated himself to making Samson a celebrity on Instagram.
Being a celebrity feline on social media doesn’t just make you look good, it works wonders for your entourage as well! Jonathan says that he has changed his love life completely, as many girls want to come over and meet the big fella. But having a big cat means having even bigger responsibilities. Jonathan had to get him a huge litter box and even a dog carrier and a dog leash!
All joking aside, Jonathan hopes that Samson’s fame will help promote cat adoption. He says: "I like to share him with people and that’s really the goal - just get him out there.
“I want to spread pet ownership and encourage people to adopt because there’s lots of cats out there that need homes.”
Since he is convinced he has the largest cat in New York, a challenger is invited to come and say they have a bigger feline pet! The four-year-old Maine Coon has now reached celebrity status due to his impressive stature - and has amassed over 104,000 followers on Instagram.
