ON top of the 800 lb gorilla.
Rosie sighting! I love her.
The bonus Rosie is lovely.
I think she might speak with a Fiona Hill brogue.
The same is true of a 5 pound cat.
It is a mere 82 F here in Eng-er-land and both the cats have melted. They sit everywhere now.

That’s a hefty cat! Samwise’s diet has been working well and he’s at a good fighting weight, in related news.
@randy khan: so true!
Mike in Oly
He is glorious and I love him.
Rosie: I am uncomfortable, but Master cleans up this creature’s poop, so it must be an even higher god than Master.
A Ghost to Most
We once had a pair of Maine Coons, Bill at 23 lbs., And Opus at 22. Neither was fat, just big.

Poor Rosie lol
Nice to see some of the kids.
@Ken: True! Rosie probably thanks the master everyday, for rescuing her.

Thanks for the pic. Where’s Lily?
Steve is magnificent. As was our much-mourned (lost him this winter, age 15) Reverend Jim.
Can confirm this also applies to my 20lb cat.
Papa Stevedore Hemingway looking magnificent as always.
Even from the back, he has the look of an ancient philosopher, one of the more contemplative schools, such as the Epicureans.

Hello Rosie honey.
@Goku (aka Amerikan Baka): Maybe she likes the company? Ha! I doubt it, but it makes a cute picture.
I see the lion cut is filling in nicely.
Rosie doesn’t look especially pleased, but she’s not going anywhere. Obviously.
Love the Steve photo! Chonky beast! Poor Rosie looks resigned….
A warm cat on arthritic joints is not to be despised.
Our BaBoo, a little 7 lb. grey rocket kat, was chased by a white Standard Poodle yesterday. My partner screamed and through stuff at the poodle. Then he closed the side gate, sigh. I keep it closed because we had a Miniature Doberman in the hood who tried to bite me in my own yard – a midget Ve-dogu-raptor.
BaBoo was anxious all afternoon at having seen the horrible beast of nightmares, and this morning still needed lots of petting. It was sad to see his loss of security.
Ceci n est pas mon nym
Yep. Our 9-pounder routinely takes over a chair we just vacated, or the dog’s bed that he wants to sleep in, and none of us know what to do about it.
Well, my wife does. She’s the cat person here and thinks nothing of grabbing the cat to reclaim her seat, and the cat will happily settle back down on top of her.
But the dog and I are flummoxed and completely defeated.
Such a mean hefty cat
Steve always cracks me up. It’s his house..the rest of you just stay there..LOL
That cat is magnificent.
I’m not really a cat person (I like other peoples’ cats) but Maine Coons could get me to consider ownership…
That’s a lion. Technically a type of cat, so the OP is not a typo, but he deserves the respect he has worked so hard to earn, and he will sit where he pleases. Although, honestly, he could be the runt of the litter and still the size of a miniature chihuahua, if he were a cat with a few years to him, he would also likely sit wherever he pleases. Not sure focusing on size is really allowing for a full understanding of the situation.
ETA: noticing now that most of the other comments agree with this … oh well, gave it a shot…

That is a wonderful image. Sort of a 3-dimensional yin/yang. Brava, Rosie, Bravo, Steve.
What a great picture!!!!!
