At the start of the year we reported on a Stafford cat who shed 33 per cent of his body weight after going on a strict diet.

The story of Max - a domestic shorthair from the county town who dropped a whopping 2.8 kilos from an obese 8.5 kilos and secured a spot on Royal Canin’s 2014 calendar - was picked up by users of BuzzFeed – a site that collates pictures, stories and posts from the web that ‘go viral’ - for a list entitled '16 strange things that have already happened in local newspapers this year'.

Our slim furry friend joined other unusual stories from local newspapers including a dog who ate a giant pair of knickers and a 100 year old who hired a stripper for her birthday.

You can see the list here and and the original story here .
