Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

In the grand tradition of Store Sidekicks, our occasional look at pets who live in shops, we'll be covering bodega cats all week long. Know a kitty we should feature? Email us photos at Note: Since pets in bodegas are technically illegal, we're leaving out identifying details to keep the store owners from getting fined.

Today's bodega cat lives in a store on Lorimer Street in Williamsburg, where it was spotted by two different Racked readers. Both of them included essentially the same note: "Fattest cat ever." Added one: "The scoop on this cat is that it's not very friendly. When I tried to pet it, it walked over and sat in a corner with its face towards the wall." Then again, if you were that massive, would you bother making friends with mere humans?
