More on 28-Pound Cat Samson, the Biggest in New York City

Earlier this week, we introduced a 28lb cat named Samson to you, and now we have more!

Meet Samson, a 28 lbs (~13 kg) Maine Coon from NYC who is larger than most bobcats. This furball is around 4 feet in length and has even been dubbed “the largest cat in NYC.” In fact, he might even be the largest cat in the world. The current Guinness World record holder passed away in 2013, and he measured at 4.04 feet. “Samson is a very sweet but a tough cat, who fits the term gentle giant very well,” Jonathan Zurbel, Samson’s owner, told Love Meow.

Check out Samson’s Instagram for more photos of the giant cat.
