Meet Samson, a 28 lbs (~13 kg) Maine Coon cat from NYC who is larger not only than most domesticated felines but also wild bobcats. This fluffy cat is around 4 feet in length and has even been dubbed “the largest cat in NYC.” In fact, he might even be the biggest cat in the world. The current Guinness World record holder passed away in 2013, and this huge cat is measured at 4.04 feet.
“Samson is a very adorable cat but also a tough one, who fits the term gentle giant very well,” Jonathan Zurbel, Samson’s owner, told Love Meow. “He is not fat or overweight but a strong sturdy cat,” the cat dad said.
“He waits by my (bedroom) door and comes in first thing in the morning to sit on my belly. He is very kind and sweet and a very well behaved cat. He is a dream cat.”
