How Does One Lose A 44-Pound Cat?

I can’t decide if this is cute or disgusting: a 44-pound cat found her way to an animal shelter in Camden County, New Jersey this week.  The cat, dubbed “Princess Chunk” by the shelter, was found outside without a collar according to Newsday. The newspaper says the largest tabby on record lived in Australia and weighed in at 46 pounds, 15 ounces. It died in the 1980s. The big kitty (pictured above with her foster mother) is on hold until Saturday in hopes that someone will reclaim her. If no one does she will be eligible for adoption.  Shelter workers suspect that the cat could have a thyroid problem.  “She could pass for a dog!” foster mom Deborah Wright told Gannett News. All I can say is WOW.

    I did not know that was even possible. My cat is about 16 pounds and I thought that was pretty hefty!

    My cat was just weighed by our vet this weekend and he’s now 15 pounds – he’s lost 3 pounds since our last visit! We’re so proud of him 🙂
