The feline's owner Molly Oliver, 68, thought Sooty's weight gain was harmless but decided to take him to the vets when she had to prise him free from the door. Vets were stunned to see the six-year-old weighed almost 28lbs, three times the size of a normal cat, and placed food rations on him.

Molly said: "Over the last couple of months I noticed he was getting stuck in the cat flap - it was quite comical to see his bottom wiggling as he squeezed through - but it was the final straw when he got stuck and could not get outside. "I realised then how awful it must be for him."
