Today, my 17 pound cat fell from a counter. It wouldn't have been a big deal if he didn't try to use my leg as a tree to cling onto on the way down. FML

Throw some iodine on that bitch and man or woman the fuck up. Back in my day we would amputate for everything and that's how we liked it... We loved it.

YDI, 17lbs? F the cats life. You need to put it on a diet.

39 - If you've ever been clawed by a cat you'd know that you can't just "man the fuck up". That shit can hurt!

another reason why dogs >>> cats

I think you got it wrong 84. It's cats>>>>>>>dogs.

more like the OP needs to stop feeding the cat bon bon's. definitely a YDI cats don't get that big on their own.

Diet- Did I Eat That? Lol..

Cats can get way bigger than that just on cat food alone, plus it depends on the breed. Even if it is fat, the op shouldn't have to spend 5x as much for diet cat food and hours every day for it's exercise. Plus fat cats are cute :D

i iz b a troll, your pic makes me want to punch you in the face

my maine coon cat is 24 pounds and he's still skinny

if cat is a mainecoone or savannah, 17lbs could be healthy or even underweight. British short hairs are pretty heafty cats too.

I'd have to agree with 93 and 80 who said anything about diet cat food the op would actually spend less money by feeding the cat less or by going all natural and letting the cat fend for himself. And by the context of the FML it would seem the OP is alluding to the fact that his cat is bigger than average otherwise this wouldn't be an FML.

Actually there is a species of cat called a Maine coon and they usually get to be about that size. I personally have one. He's only about 6 months old and weighs about 9 pounds.

Get it's claws removed :)

That's the equivalent of a human having their fingernails removed. A simple trim would suffice, don't torture the poor thing.

I think clipping them to make them shorter would be better then removing them completely.

Looking a bit too excited there, pink buddy.

It is actually worse than getting your nails removed. You have to remove the first bone of the digit, like us losing our first knuckle. Very gruesome and cats will just starting biting more to defend themselves!

This comment makes Mr.Fluffykins mad, and when Mr.Fluffykins is mad,I am mad. And when I get mad, you will never see the end of it.

4 - Declawing?! Are you effing kidding me?

I had one of my cats declawed, not all four feet though, just the front feet, she wasn't any different than other cats. She was an indoor cat

synapse, go die

Every time I hear someone complain about how horrible it is to declaw a cat, I want to tell them to go hug a tree. I've had several cats declawed, it's done professional, and only their front pals. The cats have always been fine afterwards. Just spend sometime with your kitties are they are healing and give they the good food.

yeah! remove its damn claws

that's like me ripping out you're toenails- I don't think you would like that :)

kindgremlin 5

That is a horrible message you are sending! I have had to unfortunately assist with a declaw, meaning: clamping hemostats on the cats nail base, while the vet separates the first joint from the second. I have also seen declaws that went wrong, where the vet didn't perform it correctly and their jacked up nails grew back into their paws. Horrific and much worse than scratched up furniture. There are other ways around it like Soft Paws, to name one. Side note, I'm not a tree hugger.

if you don't want an animal with claws don't buy an animal with claws. Don't go out of your way to go oh cats > dogs but i hate their claws lets declaw them. you guys suck.. btw to the other person who replied that diet cat food is to expensive and they don't think they owner should have to put hours into exercising their cat that IS exactly what they should do numb nuts. If you own an animal its YOUR responsibility and just because cats can get fat just from eating cat food doesn't mean the owner isn't feeding it too much yes cats can get fatter than that but i hardly consider it healthy. OP Deserves it for having 1 having a cat and 2 making it fat!

Get a cat treadmill! They're actually uber fun to watch .. Guess that makes me a hobbit

Well yeah..

1) Just because a cat is 17lbs doesn't mean this animal needs to diet. My 20 month old cat is about 15lbs of pure muscle. He is NOT fat. He's just very big. 2) How would you like your finger nails or toe nails ripped out? It's a painful thing to do to a cat, and they have to walk on their "fingers" after their claws get ripped out. 17lbs of weight on newly declawed paws is gonna hurt. Furthermore, you don't know the cat's environment. Since the cat has its claws, it's possible the owner lives in an area where the cat goes outside and needs said claws in order to defend itself. That totally sucks, op. I've been there and it hurts like a son-of-a-gun.

Nobody's going to read a cat grooming speech on FML. Try

Take a chill pill

Cats always walk on their "fingers", not on their nails. They retract their claws while walking (like any cat except the cheetah). Anyhow, removing their nails is still a cruel practice, just not for that reason.

lol @11.. 15 pounds "of pure muscle" doesn't sound like any cat ik.

For some reason, I want to call BS on the '15 pounds of pure muscle' thing... What kind of cat would that be? A cross breed of house cat & mountain lion? A 17 pound housecat is almost certianly fat, and needs to go on a diet.

11 - nice essay?

deefan101 11

STFU! Know one want to hear about your fat-ass cat. Which it is clearly impossible to have pure muscle! Get a life and stop making up BS!

I believe "15 lbs of pure muscle." I had a cat who was a stray that we picked up, starved and bone thin who weighed in at 13lbs. When he was healthy he was 20+.

15 Pounds Of Pure Mustle Huh.? If Yer So Proud Of it Put Him In The Hello Kitty Olympics.! Oh Wait, They Dont Have That. Cuz I Havent Seen A Normal House Cat Have 15 Pounds Of pure Mustle Cool Story Broha.

My cat is about 20lbs but he is a really long and thin cat

"My cat can bench like 10 lbs."

I'm guessing you're a crazy cat lady...?


Damn that cat needs to lose weight like Jared. Remember subway eat fresh!
