The “Garfield” comic strip depicts the adventures of an overweight and lazy cat. Now Michael Wilson is the owner of a real-life “Garfield,” except this cat’s name is Bronson and Bronson happens to weigh nearly 30 pounds.

Michael has put Bronson on a 375 calorie diet and is documenting Bronson’s weight loss online. If Bronson can lose weight, perhaps he can inspire others to lose weight as well.
