It’s Not A Bobcat Or A Lion–It’s Samson, The Biggest Cat In NYC!

Samson may not be the biggest cat to have lived, but he’s the king kitty of NYC, and that’s nothing to swat at!

This beautiful white-and-orange fluffball is–you guessed it!–a purebred Maine Coon. At 4-years-old, he’s 4 feet long and weighs in at a whopping 28-pounds.

According to Jonathan Zurbel, Samson’s human, this cat’s personality is as massive as his mane. He’s earned himself a few nicknames: Meowtorius B.I.G. and Catstradamus, to name a couple.

“He’s the [largest] cat in the city, and I welcome any challengers to step up,” Zurbel told the New York Post.

“He gets a lot of attention from strangers,” he continued in the story. “He draws crowds of photographers. People’s reactions are often, ‘Holy s - - t! Is that a cat? That’s a lion! Is it a bobcat?’”

As it turns out, Samson’s appetite and grooming bills are as massive as he is. “He goes through up to six cans of wet food a day and several bags of dry food every week. He also goes through nearly 4 pounds of litter a week, and requires a $120 grooming every few months to look his fluffy best,” reports the New York Post.

Check out some pictures (and videos) of this gorgeously gargantuan Maine Coon!
