He's kind of a big deal.
Texas, a 26-lb. shelter cat named after the large Lone Star state, is making headlines in the U.K. for his dangerously huge size.
The 8-year-old feline, who was recently taken in by the Battersea Dog and Cat Home in London, England, after presumably being fed too much by his now-deceased owner, is embarking on a strict diet and exercise plan to lose weight (safely) during the holidays and beyond.
"For Texas this really is a very serious health issue he's battling," SuiLi Weight, a team leader at the shelter, told the Daily Mail. "At Battersea we take in around 3,000 cats every year, so we see cats of all shapes and sizes, but Texas is by far the biggest cat we've ever seen."

But the groundhog sneaked through another opening – and McGrath ended up running to the front door.

Sure, anyone can do a halfway decent impression of Matthew McConaughey if they just know those three magic words: "Alright, alright, alright." But not every human impersonator can nail McConaughey's signature cadence as well as Einstein the parrot does.
