Big is beautiful: Meet the extra-large felines who have become unlikely calendar stars

They may not be the most athletic felines in the world, but these calendar cats will still give you a smile every month of the year.

The hilarious collection in the “fat cats calendar” shows our more portly furry friends starring in their very own 12-month production.

While their more lithe cousins may normally steal the limelight in calendars, these cats are carrying a few extra pounds – and are not ashamed who knows it.

The Fat Cats Calendar 2013 – coming off the back of the success of its predecessor last year – features chunky household pets in a variety of comical positions.

One rather hefty specimen in the calendar finds himself wedged inside a chair, while another is pictured on the February page flying through the air.

Other fat cats in the calendar prefer to take a more leisurely approach – sitting or simply sprawling their ample frames across the floor.
