At first glance we thought this may have been Japan's famous giant furry cat who sells sweet potatoes, or maybe even a wearable replica of someone's pet feline, but it appears this massive chonk is the real deal. Japanese Twitter user Shibata (@aojirulife) recently shared this photo of their large cat who seems big enough to hug you back!

Shibata says that the cat clocks in at just over 8 kilos. While many are rightfully concerned for the cat's weight, Shibata says that the feline currently has no major medical issues, and that she keeps in touch with a vet to make sure of it. Still, the jumbo cat has quite the presence!
