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.
