Former fat cat gets slimmer prize

A massive moggy so fat he couldn’t get through his cat flap has been honoured with the title of Pet Slimmer of the Year after he shed five kg. Mischief, six, was put on a diet when his owner was told he was so overweight he was endangering his health. He’s now slimmed down to an acceptable 6.3 kg. Mischief was joint winner with Max, a black collie-Labrador, who got down from 55 kg to 33 kg in six months.
