This is actually an obesity chart created by a vet that was edited on photoshop. Someone just wanted to make cat-health a little more fun with these cute names for it. It also takes the guesswork out of wondering if your cat qualifies as a chonk, a chomnk, or a hefty chonk by using this helpful chart.

We love our chonky friends but of course, we should all make sure they’re living their happiest and healthiest lives! See your favorite vet if you have concerns about your feline loved one.

Some cats have funny little quirks that make them seem so humanlike. Like when they stand up, when they refuse to eat their tuna anywhere except the table, and when they sit vertically. This chonk heard the rumor that cats only lay down or sit on their haunches and said no thank you.

This sweet and original kitty decided that they’d rather be unique than follow the crowd, so they chose a human-like sitting position where they could truly express themselves. You go little trendsetter.

This sweet boy was just put up for adoption and has gone viral on the internet since the rescue posted his headshots. Mr. B deserves all the fame and then some.

This chonk is waiting for a forever home and delivering some Vogue worthy photos doing it. You work those angles Mr. B, don’t let the paparazzi get your bad side — not that you have one anyway.

Humans are similar to cats in the way that we all love a good nap in the afternoon sun. There’s something about that 4 o’clock hazy sky that just makes us yawn thinking about it. This chonk took a quick 5-minute rest and it couldn’t have looked more glorious.

Just look at that fur! Those are some highlights your hairdresser would have a hard time replicating. The way the sun hits this chonk makes her look so regal. Move over, we want to have a cat nap cuddle with you.

We’ve all got those baby pictures our mom breaks out of the photo album every time we come home or we bring a new friend over. This chonk definitely felt the embarrassment we’ve all felt when his mom busted out the old baby pictures.

No, you’re not looking at mom and child — what you’re seeing is a major glow-up from little boy to big chonk. This feline became what he aspired to be and honestly, this progress story has won over our hearts. Move over Rocky Balboa, this sweet kitty has the best evolution.

We all love a visit to grandma’s house. Seriously, where else do we get to see our sweet and loving grandmas, eat delicious food, and leave fully content and $10 richer. When Reddit user TrickySkunk’s uncle was staying over at grandma’s he brought his chonky kitty along for the ride and all parties were delighted.

Look at this true love between a chonk and his granny. Chonks only lay on the ones they adore and this grandma is just getting all of his love and affection. Oh, to grandma’s house we go!

Don’t Talk When This Chonk Is Watching Her Shows

We all have those programs that we rush home so we don’t miss. Maybe it’s Ellen, Oprah, or that steamy telenova. But the last thing we want to do is even miss one second because someone’s being disruptive in the room. This cat is like us all, so don’t disturb her when her shows are on.

Judging by her shocked face she must be watching something that’s a little scary. Maybe she just tuned into an Animal Planet special on golden retrievers — that would be scary

Anyone who has ever lived in an apartment knows that the worst thing at the end of a long day is walking up those dreaded stairs to our place. This chonk feels how we all do since its weary feet won’t carry them any longer to where they want to go.

Look at that face — don’t you just want to go downstairs and pick this fat cat up and carry it the rest of the way? We’re all here for you sweetie.

Chonks Hate Hospitals Too

There’s nothing a chonky kitty hates more than the dreaded doctor’s office and we can all relate to this thought. Whenever we get a cold we just pick up some Advil and tell people it’s allergies to avoid the dreaded waiting room. This chonky sweetheart was caught mid-sentence as she told her vet that she was actually feeling fine.

Despite how much they hate it, chonky kitties should be brought in for checkups too to make sure they’re healthy. This poor girl was just shocked when they didn’t arrive at the tuna factory like her owner told her.

It’s not only domestic kitties who embrace the chonk lifestyle — even big wild cats do too. This big tiger is as fearsome as he is adorable. Don’t worry, the reason this tiger became this chonky is because of a thyroid gland issue and not because of neglectful care.

This wild boy can kill with his claws and with his looks. He’s roaming the enclosure searching for a good spot in the sun or a new stomping ground. What a wild handsome devil.

There’s nothing cuter than a chonk at rest. They love their catnaps just like the rest of their feline friends and boy, do they look great doing it. That tummy that looks like it’s made of marshmallow fluff is the only thing we want to lay our heads in right now.

Look at how cute this pancake looks sleeping! She’s all spread out in her comfiest bed and just enjoying her life being the adorable chonk that she is. Save a spot for us sweet girl!

Listen, living with other people is great…most of the time. It’s excellent when it all goes smoothly and everyone keeps quiet in the morning. But when someone’s up at the crack of dawn banging around the kitchen and disturbing your beauty rest that’s an issue. This fat cat was rudely woken up and is very upset about it.

That face is the face of a kitty shocked out of some peaceful sleep and is confused why. Listen, there better be some breakfast in bed coming or a nice tummy rub or else they’re falling back to sleep.

A scientific fact about chonks is that they’re huge supporters of the belly rub. They’re always first in line at the store when they hear the belly rub is coming back in stock, and they’re constantly updating their social media with happenings about the belly rub.

We’d all be happy to provide a sweet chonk like this with a belly rub of their very own. This adorable fluffy chonk has plenty of belly to provide our hand too. The belly itself looks longer than the girl’s arm.

We all love a good nature goddess. You know, those people who always recycle, strive to be zero waste, and do their own composting. They’re eco-conscious and they love to let us know — just like this proud chonk.

Look at how happy this kitty looks sound asleep in the sun. They’re resting peacefully among the soft grass and the little flowers and they’re loving the warm afternoon sun. This is the nature goddess we signed up for.

Meeting new animals is so fun and rewarding when you can finally see them start to trust and warm up to you. The ultimate sign that a cuddly creature is in your corner is when they roll over and present you their belly so you can rub it.

Look at this fabulous chonk and her fabulous tummy. We’d all be over the moon if she did this do us. We trust you too little girl!

Chonk On High Alert

We all have moments where we’re sent into high alert mode. When you were a student it was when the teacher said “pop quiz” and when you were an adult it was the words “tax season.” Turns out cat have their moments too.

This chonk went full-blown meerkat mode standing up on its haunches and looking around. What could it be looking for? Maybe another intruding kitty or a can of tuna being opened. A code red for any cat means a can of salmon was just taken out of the cupboard.

Sometimes we accidentally pull the plug or hit the power off switch on our computers and we have to watch the screen slowly shut down into blackness. This is a cute little chonk whose owners accidentally hit the power off switch and now she’s entering sleep mode.

She doesn’t look super comfortable as she drifts off sitting against the hard surface of the wooden door. Luckily though this chonk is still adorable even if she’s feeling uncomfortable. Can someone get this fluff a fluffy pillow?
