Kojak was a fat cat, a former street fighting tom. Rescued from the street by my grandparents and named after the TV hero, he came to live with us when my grandparents could no longer care for him.
Despite weighing more than any cat had a right to weigh, he had lost none of his fighting technique. Within days of moving in with us, he had vanquished the vicious tom from across the street, who had tormented and terrorized our pair of cuddly cats for years.
Once, a pet show was held near our home with a prize for fattest cat. We took Kojak, and waited while other fat cats were weighed in the arms of the brave volunteer (he stood on the scale and held the cats, and his weight was subtracted from the total weight). At last it was Kojak's turn. The scale went up, and up, and up. Kojak was Fattest Cat with a blue ribbon!
