This just in from London, eight of Britain's most overweight pets are to embark on a 100-day diet and fitness regime in a bid to be crowned this year's pet fit club champion.
The seven dogs and one cat, who are all more than 30 percent overweight and weigh a combined total of 191 kg (421 lb), were picked by veterinary to compete in the contest. The animals will be put on specially tailored diet and exercise programs.
Check out this fat cat, Tinks is 96% overweight. Wow....how does this happen?? Hummmmm.....maybe by giving unhealthy treats such as cheese, buttered toast and biscuits, whoppers, catnips, chocolate malts, candy bars and Sonic cheeseburgers. Maybe that's not a good idea.
