What does this look like to you? It looks like the world's largest cat, right? A 69-inch, 87 pound mutant cat raised by a Canadian man, right? Wrong.
People, do not be fooled! This is a scam, designed to earn your admiration and trust. Snopes.com busts this myth once and for all. The truth? This man is from Edmonds, Washington (not Canada!) and the photo...was photoshopped, as a joke, for his daughter. A joke! But many people didn't see it that way. Many people thought that was really the world's largest cat. The man in this picture bared all in a revealing interview for the Ottawa Citizen in 2001:
"My daughter wanted to send an electronic photo of her cat to her friend. I got a little carried away. When we sent it to her friend, we never dreamed anyone would believe the photo was real."
So now you know. But one mystery still remains. Who is the real world's largest cat? Oh, that'd be Himmy--an Australian Tabby that weighed 47 pounds.
The truth will set you free!
