The owners of one of the world's fattest cats has hit back at online troll who have wished them dead.
Porky Russian domestic cat, Liznya has amassed nearly 9,000 Instagram followers who have fallen in love with her larger than life personality.
Despite Liznya's alarming size, her owner insists she is not overfed and only eats what the vet advises since she ballooned during and after pregnancy.
As she decided to put the record straight, the cat's owner from Russia said comments left by trolls have been "sad to read".
Answering questions on Liznya's page, they said: "There are some misunderstandings. We have never tried to overfeed Liznya.
"Some people wrote we do it on purpose. How do you imagine that? She even refuses to eat any other food than her diet food.
"It is true that our cat was pregnant and spayed after it, but we do not claim this is the exact reason for her to become obese.
"We wrote that she began to gain weight quickly since her pregnancy and even quicker after it."
In an Instagram reel on Liznya's page, her owners showed themselves measuring out 29g of Royal Canin diet food for her.
In their post to answer questions about her diet, they explained that Liznya had been to the vets multiple times and that this was her current recommended diet.

But they also hit back at trolls who have "wished death" upon the owners and dispelled suggestions the rotund feline is unable to walk because of her weight problems.
The post continued: "She has been to the vet many times and has changed her diet plan more than once during this time.
"Now she seems to have stopped gaining weight with her current plan, but still there are problems with losing it.
"We can’t show her to a vet too frequently, but we will definitely do it again and again if needed.
"We do not support any kinds of abuse and it is not OK to threaten the owners.

"And we also can’t ignore that some point out that our cat was slimmer in 2020.
"It is true, but she did not gain much weight since then, look at other old pictures taken from a different angle to make sure.
"And yes, Liznya can walk, she even loves to play hunting! We agree she needs to be more active to lose her weight.
"If some people still do not believe the above, well, that is your opinion, but please do not spread false information and do not wish the owners to die.
"It is a bit sad to read messages like this."
