Mega pets: Jethro, the gentle giant

Mega pets: Not just big boned
My Maine Coone, Jethro, is an eight-year-old male weighing in at 10.5kg, and there is not an ounce of fat on him.
He was close to 6kg at 12 months old and being a Maine Coone, he is just a gentle giant, and we love him.
That's my size 10 slipper next to him and a flip top match box for size.
The photo was taken when he was 18 months old in 2007.
He's actually bigger now as Maine Coone's grow until they are about four-years-old.
They are the best breed of cat in the world; they are like having children.
They get petulant, and annoyed and you can tell when they are not happy. If he's hungry, you have to feed him or he will just annoy you.
