Another Fat Cat Makes Headlines

Titanic the cat

Another portly kitty is making news for his extra fat cells. This one has been living in a Sacramento animal shelter since his owner gave him up in August. The cat, appropriately named Titantic, was 33-pounds when he arrived at the shelter this summer.  Titanic’s new, healthier diet has helped him shed one pound, according to shelter workers.

MSNBC says the porky kitty has become a fixture at the animal shelter, sleeping on people’s feet throughout the workday. The people who work there have grown attached to him, so they’re not immediately trying to find him a home.

Prince Chunk, the 44-pound puss who turned up at an animal shelter in New Jersey, became a media sensation when he stepped onto the scale. He was adopted and his owners say he’s lost some weight too.

Central Park “Dog Walk”

I volunteered at an AC&C event in central park today and even though storm clouds and rain loomed, 4 cats and 8 dogs were adopted!! I hung out with a chihuahua named Foxy most of the morning, he was so adorable! I’ve never been much of a fan of little dogs but he was a delight, a real sweetheart who sat on my lap most of the time. I wasn’t able to get him adopted while I was there (boo!) but I’m confident the 9 month old will get scooped up real soon! I was really tempted to bring him home with me – he didn’t bark once the whole time I was with him, which would be perfect since I’m not really supposed to have a dog in my building. Man, I can’t wait till I own my own place! My husband and I really want a dog.
