Guests at Best Western Silver Fox Inn in New Hampshire can't miss one of the property's star attractions.
Logan, an 8-year-old tabby weighing 31 pounds, has become an internet star after guests posted photos and video of the massive cat on social media.
But while some find the fat cat adorable, others have accused the owner of animal cruelty for letting her cat get so overweight.
Owners Susan and Tor Brunvand told The Associated Press that they adopted Logan six years ago and he was a normal weight when they got him from a local shelter. At the hotel, he took to licking the bowls of the couple’s other cats and sneaking into a stash of cat food. He slowly put on weight.
The couple says that the cat has been taken to a veterinarian for blood tests but nothing abnormal was found. His excess weight is believed to be tied to a slow metabolism.
Susan Brunvand insists that Logan is a happy and easygoing cat, calling him her “little chubby boy, my little bear."
Another large cat has become an internet sensation recently. Samson weighs 28 pounds, but he is a Maine Coon, a breed known for being naturally large. His veterinarian has given him a clean bill of health.
