16 Huge Cats Who Have No Business Being As Enormous As They Are — PHOTOS

I've been very open about my theories that cats are going to take over the world. And not in like a cute, cuddly, meow-riffic way, but in like a total destruction and anarchy kind of way that will make us all regret the day humans first popped out opposable thumbs. I have no doubt that the charge will be led by Grumpy Cat and Pompous Albert, and that the first wave of destruction will involve them stealing our pizza. The second wave, I've determined now, will involve these ridiculously fat cats that really have no business pretending to be cats.

Before you get all up in my grill about body-shaming cats, let me assure you, I'm way past that kind of shenanigan. Cats can eat whatever the hell they want, because I sure as hell do. I don't have a problem with fat cats—I just have a problem with the cats who are clearly warming up for the eventual takeover when they eat us, our dogs, and everything we hold dear. (No, YOU have a paranoid overactive imagination.)

Look, think whatever you want about me. All that I know is that I'm going to be hella more prepared for the inevitable kitty destruction of the earth than cat-people who still believe in inherent cat goodness. For those of you who are on #TeamDog with me—nay, #TeamSurvival—these are a few of the overly large, dastardly villains you need to watch out for:
