Hey, uh, quick question: What are you doing reading this sentence? If you scroll down a bit, there’s a slow-mo video of a man dropping a 30-pound Maine Coon upside-down to see whether his girth prevents him from landing on his feet. That’s probably what you’re here for.
Still reading? I’m not sure what else I can tell you. There’s sufficient padding so that Fenway—the gigantic cat in question—is never at risk of injury, if that’s what you’re worried about. Oh, and for those of you who click play and think to yourself, “That cat’s not so big,” just give it a minute. The full-figured feline will make his appearance shortly.
You want GIFs? You got ’em.
In conclusion, you just watched some guy’s fat cat fall with a grace unmatched in the animal kingdom. Please feel free to click on something else now, and have a lovely day.
