The Fat Cat (Catus fatus) isn't really a monster. Just a cat. That is fat. Honestly, why heroes and heroines cannot overcome them...
The history of Catus fatus starts in the most ancient times. They accompanied humanity as long as there were mice in granaries and sweet cream to steal. They were often seen in company of kings, emperors, and even Gods.
In Early Egoptian times, when the cats weren't known as "fat," yet, the people of Great River started to worship them and shower them with adoration, luxuries, and tasty treats. From snack to snack, and Fat Cats came to be as we now know them.
This fearsome weight is not a coincidence.
In Ancient Grease, they were often invited to wild orgies, where they served as puffy pillows for unconscious drunkards. There is a rumour that the most favoured tiger skin cushion of Dionysus  was in fact a very much alive, but lazy, Fat Cat.
In later ages, after the fall of the empires, Fat Cats tried to find suitable company to grace with their presence and were unsurprisingly glad for hedonism, decadency, and dandyism.
