Woman's Cats Are So Massive People Accuse Her Of Photoshopping Pictures

Woman's Cats Are So Massive People Accuse Her Of Photoshopping Pictures

A woman says her cats are so bloody massive that people have accused her of photoshopping pictures of them.

Mary Lopez, from St Albans, Hertfordshire, UK, picked up Shadow and Archie as four-month-old kittens, by which point they were already as big as the average fully-grown cat.

Now, the one-year-old half siblings each way more than a stone - and the Norwegian Forest cats will continue growing until they're four.

Recalling a viral photo that brought her colossal cats online fame, 38-year-old Mary said: "Taking the photo was one of those spur of the moment things where I said to my husband [Gab] to take a picture, as they grow quickly.

"I said, 'It's been a while since we've done a photo with Shadow'. It was a flippant five-second decision, and then Gab was like, 'Oh my god, he looks giant in this photo'.

"I posted it on Facebook just for fun. It went a bit crazy. I know the internet loves cats but oh my god.

"There were people claiming there must be someone standing behind me that has longer arms, or maybe I'm really short, or maybe it's a photoshop.

Indeed, mum-of-one Mary stands at a fairly average 5ft 7ins - the cats just look massive 'cause they are, with Mary and hubby Gab spending around £150 ($199.75) a month on their food, litter, toys and flea treatments.

The pair are well worth the expense though.

People Are Sharing Pictures Of Pet 'Colleagues' As They Work From Home

Mary said: "They are lovable giants and I wouldn't be without them.

"[When we got them] They didn't look like how you would imagine four or five-month-old kittens to look. They already looked like fully grown cats.

"If I go to someone's house who has normal-sized cats, I think, 'My god, your cat is tiny'. They just look like kittens to me.

"If I see a regular-sized cat now, I think, 'What's wrong with the cat?'. I see my big cats every day [so it's what I'm used to]."

Archie and Shadow, who share the same dad but were born in separate litters just days apart, joined the Lopez household just before the first lockdown in March.

Mary, who works as head of marketing at an IT company, said: "They have big personalities, quite like water and obviously look big and fluffy. We have a big fluffy dog as well. The cats are a bit dog-like as well. They're very human orientated.

"We originally went for one, which was Archie, who is ginger, because my mum loved ginger cats.

"I previously had a black cat and Shadow escaped from the pen and he kept meowing and would not leave me alone.

"I picked him up and my dad looked at my husband and said, 'I think you're going to get two'."
