When she recorded footage of her slightly rotund Shypnx cat lounging around the house she got a rather unexpected reaction!
Most of us tend to bring in the New Year with a rather tough reality check, having gorged ourselves with excessive quantities of Christmas cheer, we tend to carry that into the New Year as well, just like this Sphynx cat you’re about to meet.
That being the case, many of us can empathize with Amsterdam, a three-year-old very bald Sphynx with a bit of a weight issue. He belongs to Jana Martinka from Vienna, Austria, who recently shot footage of Amsterdam, which quickly went viral, quickly racking 34,000 likes on Instagram in January.
He seems to have become a bit of a spirit animal, or totem, to those who would like to shed the excesses leftover from the festive season.
Jana shot the footage of her rather round cat in her home while he sat like a human with his potbelly sticking out for all to see. The video also shows Jana’s three-year-old fellow Sphinx Neytiri, lying prone as she looks up at her chubby companion.
Jana said: “I thought it was very funny but also very special for me to see them like this. The reason why he was sitting like this is because there is an infrared heater on the wall and the cats love to sleep there.”
