I've had more than a few cats, and I've never had one that had his widest spot be in the middle while he's lying on the ground. He's starting to look like some kind of genetic experiment to cross a house cat with a Holstein.
Luckily, I get to go to work to get away from his non-stop 'Feed ME!' meowing. He doesn't bother my wife that bad...he knows I'm the sucker in the family.
