We'll spare his felines and describe him as chunky...
A video of a portly puss struggling to nip through a doggie door flap has proved popular on YouTube racking up 19 thousand views so far.
Cat owner Linda Joiner posted a video of her ginger moggie, which bears an uncanny resemblance to the lasagna-loving fictional cat Garfield, almost getting jammed in a small flap built into the door for her tiny dog. Getting stuck half way through his endeavour the unfortunate chubby kitty is seen making sad mews as he tries to squeeze his fulsome body through the opening.
It's a paw performance.
Rumours that the now famous kitty, who weighs 26lbs, is on the 'Catkins Diet' remain unconfirmed.
A recent survey has suggested that out of the eight million pet cats in the UK, one in four are now obese. If the current trend continues half of all British cats could be too large to fit through standard cat flaps by 2020.
