There are some big cats out there. I’m talking domestic ones, not the ones that you see in the wilderness that could take your face off with a single swipe of their paw. Some of these cats are large because they overeat, but some of them are just naturally big. Take a look at the cat in this video to get an idea of what it’s like.
We meet Samson, a cat who holds the title of the largest cat in New York City. He’s a massive Maine Coon, weighing 26 pounds and measures at over four feet in length. He’s bigger than some dogs. He also acts like a dog, following his daddy around his apartment and sleeping at the foot of the bed. He doesn’t fetch, though, as far as I know.
Samson’s dad says that he’s quite gentle, and it seems like it. A drawback? Grooming him costs over $100 a pop. He’s quite hairy. Insane grooming costs, constant litter changing, and possibly only having steel furniture due to his massive claws possibly shredding any cloth, it looks like having a cat like Samson would be a blast.
Samson’s got quite a substantial Instagram following, and he gets wheeled around Manhattan in a baby carriage. Can you imagine walking by the carriage and seeing a cat instead of a baby? I can’t imagine having a cat that large.
It’s funny that his daddy uses him as bait to pick up dates. Hey, if I were a single man and had a cat like that, I would definitely be wheeling him all around too. Samson won me over the very second I first saw him.
