Meet Timmy the massive moggy

Nicole, 14, with her massive cat Timmy

Timmy the cat has grown so big he has to sleep in a kennel at night!

The black and white pussy only eats a can of cat food a day but still weighs a whopping 10kg (22lb) - which is about the same as a two-year-old child.

It's thought Timmy, who was adopted from an animal shelter, has always been large and is simply "big-boned".

His owner Sean Langley said it was hard for Timmy to make friends: "He doesn't have any other animal friends - I think they're scared of him."

Luckily for Timmy he gets loads of care and attention from his loving family instead!
