The heaviest cat in Britain was officially forced to go on a diet.
Ulric's goal is to weigh 13 pounds, an optimum amount for a feline. Which means he'll have to lose 17, or 56.6% of his body weight. Is he up to the challenge?
Every journey starts with a single step, Ulric.
After reaching 30 pounds, Ulric's owner, Jan Mitchell, entered him in PDSA Pet Fit Club where 21 animals participate in a six month diet and exercise plan.
Hopefully, healthy recipes and regular chasing of toy mice will help him get to the promised land and raise awareness for the growing epidemic of animal obesity.
