Meridian resident Russ Anderson hold her 3-year-old pet, "Tomcat," who weighed in at 25.2 pounds on a recent visit to the veterinarian. Tomcat spends his days relaxing in Anderson's back yard, but keeping a close eye on the bird feeder. Anderson says Tomcat is a homebody who loves to intimidate birds. "He also loves for me to brush him and he always get a treat before bed," she said.
