This Is The Largest Cat In New York City
Meet Samson, the cat who has been declared the largest cat in New York City.
Samson is a Maine Coon cat who is 4 feet long and weighs 28 pounds.
Samson may weigh a lot, but he's not overweight - he's just a healthy, happy, very, very large cat.
"He is a gentle giant," Splurt Zillionz, Samson's dad, told The Dodo. "Very sweet, tender but a tough guy. He likes to wrestle and play but secretly enjoys being tender as long as nobody is watching. He is a ladies man who loves females much more than men, except for his daddy who he loves very much."
Samson is 4-years-old, and has lived with his dad in an apartment in the city since November 2013. Even as a baby he was always an exceptionally large kitten, and now weighs about 10 pounds more than an average Maine Coon cat would.
Despite NYC apartments being notoriously tiny, he always seems to find space for himself ...
... wherever he can.
Samson has been getting a lot of attention lately because of how large he is, and you would think it might be going to his head ...
... but honestly, Samson couldn't care less.
He's large and in charge, and doesn't care who knows it.
