What is the difference between a slonk and a chonk?
- A slonk is a long, and slender cat, such as a Siamese. The name is presumably a blending of the words slink and long, with a k added for effect.
- A chonk is a chunky cat and has been in use since the late 2000s.
One of the most famous chonks is a mackerel tabby domestic shorthair named BJ who was looking for a home in 2019. Weighing in at 26 pounds (11.81 kg), BJ won the heart of the Internet, his post crashed the Morris Animal Refuge by potential adopters.
