Why would anyone let their pet get like that? I watch my Beagle like a hawk as they are known for being overweight and I control her food intake for the same reason. So far so good.

I may be mistaken but that cat looks at least part Turkish Angora. I have a similar one. Mine has features that are finer. She weighs 8 lbs. and there is always food in her bowl.

The owner of the cat pictured needs to get to a vet quick.

I saw this yesterday on the Today show and was appalled. What is the owner thinking to allow this poor cat to become so fat? Frankly, I hope the owners don't claim her so she can be adopted by someone who has more sense.

I thought our one cat was big at half that weight.

Fat cat a victim of foreclosure

Fat cat a victim of foreclosure - TODAY: Pets - Today.msnbc.com

Quote:
A 44-pound cat found lumbering around New Jersey was abandoned by a woman who said her home was foreclosed, an animal shelter official said Thursday.

The porky white cat found Saturday became a local media sensation and was dubbed "Princess Chunk". But the animal is really a male whose name is Powder.

Jennifer Andersch, director of the Camden County Animal Shelter, said Thursday that the cat's owner came forward to describe the animal's background.
