Animals Of Instagram Spotlight Of The Week: Panda, The Chonky Bear

Once a week, we will be featuring an extraordinary animal account on Instagram! Their story, the adorable pictures, and pawesome videos! This week's spotlight goes to Panda, the chonky bear

Meet Panda, the gorgeous and quite chonky 5-year-old Maine Coon! We were able to get in touch with Panda's owner, Courtney Culligan, and find out Panda's story. "A distant family friend couldn't care for him anymore so my boyfriend's family took him in. They quickly realized a few members of their family were allergic and couldn't keep him - so we took him in!" Courtney tells us.

Upon taking Panda to the vet, they were told Panda was between the ages of 3-7, so they call him "a fabulous 5-year-old." Panda was initially a stray cat, which was made obvious due to the universal sign of a stray cat being fixed - a chipped ear tip. A stray cat who found himself in the right hands! When Courtney first got Panda, he was overweight. Since rescuing him back in February 2019, Panda has lost 3.5 lbs! 

When it comes to Panda's personality, Courtney shared, "He is extremely cuddly and seems like he's constantly purring. He LOVES carrying his toys around the house (like his mini panda). He loves chicken and turkey wet food, hates our vacuum and trash bags, and adores pretty much everyone he meets."

Panda is often featured carrying around his stuffed toys, especially his little panda, and it's probably the most important thing you'll see all day, trust us. Be sure to follow Panda on Instagram to witness his weight loss journey, and of course, watch him be his adorable floofy self! 

Read up on last week's star on Instagram, Thor, the flying cat!

Chonky Cat Appreciation Because Big Cats Need Big Love

We must all be good cat owners and take care of our fluffballs, let's start with that. We have to keep them healthy, take care that they have enough water and food, that they get they pets and cuddles, and that they stay active. Keeping cats active can be difficult though, we all know how much they love their beauty sleep. 


Some cats, despite our best efforts, are chonkier than others. These gorgeous big beauties deserve all the love in the world too. So, take care of them, rub their big fluffy bellies, buy them a laser pointer and get them going crazy over it, and make sure that they they know that the bigger they are the more places you have to pet them.

Chonkers Who Sit Like Tired Old Men (20 Pics)

When you think of cats, you think of majestic and elegant beauty, do you not? Well, there are definitely cats that are elegant and graceful, most cats actually are both without trying at all. 

Then, there are cats like this... Adorable chonkers who make us do a double-take. Sitting as if they're people, and even wearing a human expression, we can't help but feel a little confused when looking at these images. 

Overall, we do like the images and have decided to be on the hunt for even more cats sitting like so. It has brought us a great deal of happiness. (Honestly, we like an any exposing a cat's fluffy soft belly)

Sit free, cats of the world! Don't let society tell you what's acceptable!

Sanctuary Deems Rescued Owl "Too Fat To Fly"

Suffolk Owl Sanctuary has deemed a rescued owl "too fat to fly" when it was brought in from a ditch and thought to be injured... turns out, the owl wasn't injured and simply too chonky to fly. 

The little owl, known as a Athene noctua, was examined by staff and they found it to be "simply extremely obese" and "unable to fly effectively" as a result of that. 

So even so the owl isn't injury, it's still good that it's at the sanctuary where they can regulate its diet and he it achieve a more "natural weight" and thus, able to fly once more. 

Good luck, little guy! We believe in you!
