Eat your heart out, Garfield: A cat weighing a hefty 44 pounds ...

Full story: Newsday

A 44-pound feline was found waddling around Saturday without a collar in Voorhees, and officials at the Camden County Animal Shelter hope she gets a nice - hopefully, diet-friendly - home.

Probably got rid of her because they couldn't afford to feed her.

I can't believe no one is addressing the fact that this lady just abandoned her animal on purpose. We have enough strays roaming the streets without people dumping their pets because of foreclosures. Take it to the pound. Take out an ad in the paper. Give it to a neighbor or friend- just don't dump them in the street.

Why is this even news? We have way more important things to worry about then a fat cat.

Look closely! This isn't a scrawny, under nourished or mistreated animal. This is one fat cat!
In fact, loking at the animal's obese condition, someone should be looking for the previous owners to place animal abuse charges for not properly maintaining this cats weight. Probabily has heart disease, fatty liver high triglycerides and elivated cholesterol.
Lipitor, anyone?

Good chance the cat resembles his owners.

Well, sadly just one of my 7 year old twins just made it to 45 pounds; the other still weighs less than the "Prince" himself! Hey, at least he wasn't abadoned malnourished like most of the cats found at our local shelters...maybe it's a thyroid condition...isn't that the typical "human" excuse for "human" obesity?

If this cat was not picked up by animal control, he was destined to die either a slow painful death due to starvation/dehydration, or a quick painful death by being mauled by a neighborhood dog or being hit by a car. Pet owners who think that abandoning their pet on the streets must realize that these pets are not prepared to fend for themselves.
Also, cats are much more likely to suffer from hyperthyroidism (speeds up the metabolism) than hypothyroidism (slows down the metabolism).

My grandson is in the top 90% per his doctor. He is far from overweight. He is tall for his age, 46".

They wouldn't have had to worry about it breeding, since nobody wants to sleep with a fat cat

How do you know it didn't sneak out? Then out run it overweight owner, before they could catch it. If they're hose is being foreclosed, I dobt if they have money to take ot an ad in the paper. Why don't you run an ad looking for cats, that people need to give up, and take care of them yourself? You don't have a clue, but you know all the answers. With people like you, no wonder Bush is in office.

That's so unhealthy for a cat to be. Too much food means too much cat (or human for that matter)
