Munchkin, the Monster Cat

Here's Munchkin, the Monster Cat.

Munchkin's picture comes from the website of the Sydney Morning Herald, where it was included in a gallery of Fat Cats. All of the other cats look perfectly real, but then one arrives at Munchkin who really stands out from the crowd.

Is Munchkin for real?

Personally, I'm stumped. Common sense would suggest that Munchkin has somehow been digitally enlarged, but I can't see any obvious signs of photoshopping. Everyone I've shown the photo to has voted that Munchkin is fake, but I'd like to be able to find the tell-tale detail that proves Munchkin fake.

Any opinions?
