Real-life Garfield lays claim to title of 'world's fattest cat'.
Living up to his cartoon namesake's notoriously gargantuan appetite, obese Garfield was brought into North Shore Animal League of America in Long Island, New York, after his owner passed away.
Tipping the scales at 40lb, staff have since put him on a low calorie diet, containing no dry food in the hope Garfield can lose around 2lbs a month.
Garfield is relatively healthy but finds it difficult to move because his weight is putting strain on his hips.
Now staff are encouraging Garfield to move with toys, a ball, and by picking him up and putting him down somewhere else, so he has to walk back to his original spot.
