Albert, Fat Cat
Albert is huge. We've all seen a cat like him, one that looks more like a blimp than a pet. Albert's weight makes him lethargic, which creates a loser's circle: too heavy to move around much, the only exercise he enjoys is eating, overeating adds to his weight problem.
Lorilee, the protagonist in Cats and Crimes, blames Albert's former owner, who equated food with love. Once any being, cat, dog, or person, gives in to gluttony, it's very hard to change.
I guess what I'm saying is that Fat Albert will never be svelte.
