Gigantic Cats Who Clearly Aren’t Kittens Anymore

FeaturedCat

Everyone knows cats are descendants of their big brothers, the lion, cheetah, leopard, and all the other large felines that sit at the top of the food chain. However, we’ve adopted their tiny versions to be our pets and companions. We’ve taught them to poop inside a small box and chase around a laser beam for our entertainment.

We see cats now as tiny little lions and tigers that roam our house, but not all cats are mini versions of their feline ancestors! Some are a lot closer to the original version and are just as large and beefy as the cats that roam the deserts and jungles. Although most cats still get playful like when they were babies, the size doesn’t lie. Here are 18 cats that definitely aren’t kittens anymore.

18. Still A Kitten?

18. Still A Kitten?The owner of this cat claims that the feline is less than two years old! If it gets that big after just two years on a diet of Friskies, we can’t imagine what it might look like in twice that amount of time! Or perhaps maybe the girl is rather tiny, and the house is just a tiny version of a large house, in order to stage it so the cat looks big. That’s highly unlikely, however. That’s just a regular old big cat!

17. You’re Gonna Lose That Bottle

17. You’re Gonna Lose That BottleHopefully, the owner of this cat wasn’t looking to get that bottle back, cause it looks as though that cat’s stomach is about to eat it. It could probably use it, though, as water is essential to any diet, especially a cat who could stand to lose a couple of pounds. Not fat shaming here, though! The cat is still just as cute as it was when it was a teacup sized kitten!

16. Is That Guy OK?

16. Is That Guy OKThat guy holding the cat looks pretty exhausted, but we suppose that’s to be expected for holding such a huge cat. That cat is easily 30 pounds, possibly more! It doesn’t look like it’s fat either, as it has huge paws and a huge tail to go along with

That guy holding the cat looks pretty exhausted, but we suppose that’s to be expected for holding such a huge cat. That cat is easily 30 pounds, possibly more! It doesn’t look like it’s fat either, as it has huge paws and a huge tail to go along with it’s large size. If you see this cat coming towards you, it’s probably best to do whatever it wants, because, by the looks of it, those claws could do some serious damage.

15.Cat Barbell

15.Cat BarbellWho needs to go to the gym when you can just lift your cat above your head over and over and over again? Seriously, though, that girl has to be super strong, as lifting that massive cat doesn’t even look like it phases her! The cat is a perfect companion, as both seem to be pretty strong and full of power. Just look at that cat’s majestic pose and stern glare. He knows he’s beautiful.

14. Big Buddies

14. Big BuddiesA lot of big dogs and cats might have problems getting along because, well, one they’re natural born enemies, and often cats can feel threatened by the size of some dogs. These two don’t seem like they’d have that problem, however. The only problem they probably have is finding enough space in a queen sized bed for the both of them! How lucky the owner must be to have two big beautiful babies!

13. He Doesn’t Look Too Happy

13. He Doesn’t Look Too HappyHoly, uh, cat! That is one giant feline. And he doesn’t seem too thrilled about being caged up either. That’s probably a necessary step though in an attempt to tame such a large beast. Judging by the size of his head compared to his body, though, this cat’s probably suffering from being quite overweight. Maybe he’s locked up to help him avoid visiting the food bowl too often! Either way, he’s still a beautiful beast and just as cute as when he was a tiny baby!

12. Time For Cuddles!

12. Time For Cuddles!

Oh baby, that is one massive feline! Despite his size, he seems to be enjoying being the little spoon! This picture is just way too cute. Showing how much he loves being cuddled proves that cats are never too big to get some good cuddle time in. the baby seems to be loving it soon, and hopefully, they’ll still cuddle the same when the kid grows to be bigger than the cat. That’ll probably be a long time, however.

11. Is She OK?

11. Is She OKThis woman’s looking a little uncomfortable, and we don’t blame her a bit. She probably forgets what it’s like to have

This woman’s looking a little uncomfortable, and we don’t blame her a bit. She probably forgets what it’s like to have feeling in her legs. But when a cat that size wants to sit on your lap, you let it. Sure, he might not know that he’s not really the size of a lap cat anymore, however, we’re a little too scared what the consequences might be if you try to deny him cuddles. Really, though, how could you resist cozying up to such a gentle giant?

10. Is That A Cat Or A Blanket?

10. Is That A Cat Or A BlanketAt first, it doesn’t quite appear that this is a cat, instead, just a giant snow beast. It is indeed, a friendly feline, however. That woman must have some pretty strong muscles to be able to carry such a heavy baby around like that. That cat doesn’t look to be completely hating it, though, even though you can’t really see his face. She better be careful if he doesn’t, because you might not be able to recover an attack from the giant marshmallow.

9.Beware Of Cat

9.Beware Of CatYou better beware of this cat, cause if you’re not, he might, um, eat you? From the looks of it, this cat probably would only do damage if you forgot to fill his food bowl. Regardless, a cat this size could probably do some serious damage if he really wanted to. It’s best we just avoid the chances of anything happening and follow the directions on the mat to steer clear of the feline.

8. Is That A Tiny Banana?

8. Is That A Tiny BananaIs that a giant cat or just a tiny banana? Judging by the rest of his surroundings, that cat’s probably the unique one here. He’s so giant, in fact, that he doesn’t even seem bothered by the banana resting on his back. Whoever put it there must be brave, because to risk disturbing the serenity of a beast of his size is a risky endeavor.

7. I’d Be Scared Too

7. I’d Be Scared TooWe never felt that scared of house cats until seeing this picture, but the look on that fox’s face pretty sums up the emotions most people have when seeing that cat. Not only does that giant look like he’s doing a good job of keeping up, but he’s also got eyes to kill directly planted on that fox’s throat. We’d love to see the after pic of this, but hopefully, the fox was swift enough to escape.

6. No Way That’s Not A Lion

6. No Way That’s Not A LionWe’re pretty sure that cat is about 90 percent lion and 10 percent house cat. Not only does he have massive paws and a huge face to go along with his lion-like appearance, but he has a mane that would match a dessert beast as well! Although he’s pretty similar to the original big cats, this little guy looks as though he still enjoys his fair share of cuddles.

5. Longest Cat

5. Longest CatNot only is that a giant cat, but it’s also a long one! It spans longer than the woman’s arm and torso combined! Unlike many of the cats on the list, this one seems slender and has a pretty big frame to fill if he wants to play with the big boys. It’s very rare that such majestic beauty exists in such a graceful photo.

4. This Can’t Be Real

4. This Can’t Be RealNo way is this cat real. This one almost puts all others to shame. Many cats so far on the list have long hair, which only adds to the large appearance. Instead, this cat appears to have pretty short hair, and is mostly just made up of mass! The cutest part of this cat is that it looks the furthest from an actual big cat, and just looks like a large version of a kitten!

3. Garfield?

3. GarfieldUh oh, looks like someone’s been getting into the lasagna a little too much! That’s right Garfield, we’re calling you out! I bet this cat hates Mondays too. From the look on his face, he probably hates a lot of things, especially being held like a machine gun. How else is one supposed to display such a gentle giant without breaking their arms, though?

2. Neither Looks Too Happy

2. Neither Look Too HappyNeither of these two looks very happy to be here. The man’s probably thinking, “how did I let my cat get this big?” While the cat thinks, “why did he let me get so big, knowing I could easily kill him if I wanted to?” He better look out, because paws like that could do some serious damage! In all honesty, the two probably have a good relationship, as that cat is probably just as cuddly as he was when he was a kitten.

1. I Think He Likes That

1. I Think He Likes ThatThat cat sure does look happy to be held like that. We can’t blame her, though, you can’t not show off such a huge beast like that. I mean, have you ever seen a tail so fluffy? Have you ever seen a belly so pettable? And that face is like a bunch of orange fluff balls squished together. It’s very rare that such a large beast can be tamed like that, so we don’t blame her for wanting to show him off like a trophy.

Watching animal documentaries can be hard because it makes us want to find an illegal animal smuggler to buy a cute lion or cheetah cub from! But taming such large beasts is difficult (and illegal). You don’t have to go through that because these pictures proved that finding a huge house cat to tame is easy!

The fact that we’re shocked by these large cats proves that maybe we’re putting unrealistic body image pressures on our house cats, and quite frankly, we’re sick of it. Regardless of the size of the cat, the true spirit of a kitten is never lost, and these cats are just as cute as they were when they were fluff balls the size of our palms.
