The body positive movement is a great way to help people's self-esteem, and Canadian photographer Pete Thorne is extending the movement's encouraging ethos to include people's feline friends with 'Fat Cats.' The coffee table book is a photography series that contains just what it claims: photographs of corpulent kitties.

Pete Thorne has become something of an expert when it comes to photographing pets who might not be in perfectly prime health. Before 'Fat Cats,' he did another coffee table book called 'Old Faithful,' which photographed dogs that were getting long in the tooth.

Each of the cats in 'Fat Cats' also gets their own short bio, such as Crookshanks, who "loves lasagna and hates Mondays" or Chesterfield, who "hates pretty much everything."
