More social media accounts are dedicating themselves to specific chonky cats and their weight-loss efforts
Theyre chonky, theyre fluffy, theyre thicc and body pawsitive. Theyre round boys, floofs and absolute units.
The new animal trend on the internet celebrates the rotund and plump, with social media users focusing on the adorableness of a cats rounded cheeks, a hamsters many rolls, a dogs rounded shape and a raccoons voluptuous volume.
The Instagram account Chonky Animals has more than 409,000 followers while the Round Boys and Round Animals accounts top out at more than 455,000 and 487,000, respectively. The Facebook group, This Cat is Chonky, has more than 395,000 members and hundreds of new posts each day.
The trend raises concerns about overfeeding and keeping a pet unhealthy for the sake of cuteness. While humans can decide if they are healthy at every size, animals cannot, nor do they have the ability to tell their owners if they need help. But it has also inspired a wholesome movement toward making sure these animals remain healthy, as well as cute. More and more accounts are now dedicating themselves to specific chonky cats and their weight-loss efforts.
A heavy cat is pretty adorable, said Mike Wilson, one of the owners of Bronson, a cat who was 33 pounds when he was adopted and is now 23 pounds, one year later. A big cat on a diet is a guilt-free way to follow an obese cat.
In addition to Bronson, who has more than 214,000 followers, theres Bruno Bartlett, the gray polydactyl cat that likes to stand on his hind legs, and his brother, Carlo. On Facebook, Fat Lailas efforts at fat camp are lovingly documented, as well as her missteps when she snuck into the closet to steal treats one night.
Theres a reason why the internet is so obsessed with fat cats, said Lauren Paris, the owner of Bruno and Carlo. Theyre so cute.
Paris felt drawn to Bruno when stories about a thicc cat up for adoption went viral last year. She and her friend wrote a song, Give Me That Fat Cat, ensuring not just the adoption, but Brunos Instagram stardom.
However, upon meeting him, she knew his claim to fame his chub could not stay.
He was so adorable, but he could barely move, Paris said. The shelter was doing the best they could do, but he lived in a room with other cats and he would just eat their food.
