|Bandit is a very large male Siamese cat who is six months younger than Chiquita, but weighs in at three times her size at 24 lbs.
Bandit is oblivious to his size and loves to take a seat on our laps while we're watching TV. He also tries to be just like his brother and sister, but his size makes him a bit less graceful, ok - clumsy.
He had some cancerous growths removed from his shoulder and head about two years ago. He recovered nicely and is otherwise in good health. The vets are generally not concerned about his weight because they say he is simply a big cat. In fact, he has earned the honor of largest cat ever treated at our current vet. Everyone there knows Bandit!
