This is not just a nice kitty for you. A cat from Brooklyn named Samson weighs as much as 28 pounds (almost 13 kg). This makes him the largest domestic cat in the whole of New York."He is the biggest cat in the city, but if someone wants to challenge his title, I'm happy to compete," says Jonathan Zarbel (42), owner of the 4-year-old Maine Coon, 4 feet long (1.2 meters).
Dr. Lisa Lippman, a veterinarian from Manhattan,confirms that Samson is the largest cat in the city, about which she heard. Most cats, with whom she had the opportunity to work, weighed no more than 10 pounds (4.5 kg).
Maine Coon representatives are the largestamong cats. But even among them, males weigh on average 15 to 25 pounds (7-11 kg). Such information can be found on the Maine Coon Fancy website, dedicated to this breed.
It is not at all surprising that with such unusual data Samson does not behave like a typical cat.Owner pet, music producer,tells us that Samson perfectly brings objects, follows him from room to room and often lies next to him, just like a dog. However, a miracle cat does not like to walk on a leash. Instead, Zarbel rolls him through the streets of Williamsburg in a green carriage for pets.
