Is there anything more galling than a fat cat who got the cream? We all know of someone who has indulged themselves a little too much. How about Chuck Blazer, alleged to have collected untold millions during his 20-year reign at FIFA with a staggering $29 million in credit card charges to help fuel his extravagant lifestyle, which included a pricey Trump Tower apartment for his cats. Or the chief executive of the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals who pocketed over $250,000 a year in salary while closing a rescue centre due to its high running costs… of approximately $16,000.
These, and many more, are true stories included in the Purrlitzer Prize-winning Fat Cats. Each spread features a photograph or photomontage of an engorged feline, such as squeezed into a fridge tucking into its contents, celebrating with champagne or rolling on piles of dollar bills. Along with amusing text to accompany the image, there is also a paragraph on real-life fat cats caught in the act – the kind of fat cats who give Wall St and excess a bad name.
Featuring a colour photo or photomontage of each feline felon, Fat Cats is a fun book of 45 funny images and quirky real-life cases.
