Porky cat’s owner installs child locks on kitchen cupboard to stop him stealing food
PORKY puss Keith is so fat his owner has put child locks on cupboards to stop him stealing food.
Sara Matthews, 47, spent £2,500 on blood tests to find out why her formerly homeless pet is always hungry — but it is still a mystery.

And despite even locking the fridge, the famished feline still raids neighbours’ bins — even for pizza.
The eight-year-old now weighs 24lbs — twice that of an average moggie.
Sara, from Bristol, said: “He’d clamber in when you opened the fridge. And it didn’t matter what handle we had on a cupboard, he would find a way in.
“He’s a really happy, active cat. I don’t think he sees weight as an issue.”
When Keith was first rescued he was undernourished and had stomach problems so had to be put on a special diet.
But he soon started putting on weight by stealing other cats’ food.

Sara said: “He would eat anything, even weird things like vegetables and pizza crusts by going through our bins and neighbours’ rubbish.
“He would clamber in when you opened the fridge and I was worried he’d get trapped in without us noticing.
“And it didn’t matter what handle we had on a cupboard he would find a way in.
“We to had fit child locks and put his food in plastic tubs with click down lids.”
