Animals Video

By Joe McFarlane


A Buddha-bellied Sphynx cat was recorded by his owner in a hilarious video that captures how most of us feel in January.

With Christmas being over, and most of us having gorged and divulged ourselves a little too much over December, the new year can be a tough reality check.

And the same goes for the animal kingdom, as Jana Martinka filmed her bald six-year-old Sphynx cat, called Amsterdam, who has become everyone’s January spirit animal.

Jana filmed the chunky feline in her home in Vienna, Austria, as the rotund Amsterdam sat up like a human, with his large bald belly and rolls hanging out for all to see, including 3-year-old Neytiri, a fellow Sphynx cat, who was laying down looking up at her 7.5kg chubby hubby.

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 ab infrared heater on the wall and the cats love to sleep there.”
