Tucker is a 20-year old feline who once weighed overĀ 14kg, which is more than a pair of Christmas turkeys. Because Tucker stayed inside all day, he got little exercise. That’s when his owner decided to let Tucker roam around the streets of Raleigh, North Carolina.

Not only hasĀ Tucker has not only shed 22% of his weight, but he has now become a downtown celebrity. At last count Tucker had 1,380 friends on Instagram as oakcitykitty. If walking around can lower the weight of a cat, think of what a little exercise can do for the average person.
