I hope the other 399 people who wanted to adopt this cat took another one instead. Even non-celebrity cats need a home!!

How much food do you need to feed a 44 pound cat? No wonder the owner's home was foreclosed.

And why is this news? There's a child out there somewhere, that's missing.

If only half of the 400 people who wanted to adopt Prince Chunk would take one of the other cats or kittens in the local South Jersey shelters,(Camden County Shelter, Voorhees Animal Orphange or Animal Welfare Assoc). These shelters have hundreds of cats waiting for adoption. Please consider adopting a cat or kitten from one of these no kill shelters. Thanks!

the only problem i have with shelters is the process to adopt. You would think you are adopting a freaking chinese baby. the application and interview and home inspection. jesus christmas....its a cat. i will never adopt from shelters, i buy from pet stores only. no fuss no muss. in and out with a new little baby.

Who does home inspections? Chester County SPCA doesn't, that's where I got my kitties from.

you shouldnt try to maintain that weight, you should feed the cat it's appropriate food intake and allow it to shrink to a nice 18lb cat,,, or smaller.

Have to agree with you Mom of Twins. Who really cares about a stupid fat cat when we are dealing with some of the biggest problems in US history. All you in hear enertained by this story must be well off or something. Screw the cats, donate them all to science so that BIO major students can cut them up and learn something that will help in the medical treatment of a HUMAN.

I actually prefer canines, however, this feline is one of the cutest ones I've ever seen. I think I could actually take this kitty for walks on a leash. Prince Chunk is the perfect name.

the one aspca in jersey where i used to live wanted to come over and see the home the cat would be living in and do interviews. the one here in bensalem also said they do that. seems to me if there are so many homeless animals in shelters, so many that when i had to give away my cats to move that 8 out of the 10 shelters i called couldn't take them because they had no room, i would think they would be more willing and make it easier to adopt. I found my adopters on craig's list.

Here in Los Angeles it can be just the opposite. I just adopted a kitten from our local "Animal Care and Control Center" They don't want to be called shelters anymore (especially since some didn't do much sheltering). Went in filled out some paperwork, paid the fee and after she was spayed, took her home. I wanted to adopt a dog last year, and you would have thought I was trying to lease the crown jewels! Did I have a yard, would the dog get to be inside, was there a fence, etc., etc., etc., along with a home inspection and a promise to return the dog, if the hom is ever found unfit. I understand they want the best for the animals, but for crying out loud, how do they ever adopt animals out???

I'd like to cut you up but I'm sure the only thing I'd learn is that you're just as much of an ahole on the inside as you are on the outside. It is solely because of people like YOU that many of us HUMANS have more compassion for animals than people.

Citizen and Mom of Twins, I pity your kids. If they grow up treating animals they way you claim they deserve, you are raising serial killers in the making. Humans can have compassion for animals AND people at the same time. And if you don't have any compassion for animals, you probably don't have any for people either. And pet owners, please, if you are about to lose your home, don't just turn your pet out on the street. Make some arrangement for them. They've given you years of love and loyalty.
