Record-Busting Fat Cat Dumped At Animal Shelter In Arizona
Phoenix, Arizona (CNN) - An animal shelter in phoenix got an unusual addition this week.
This is "meatball."
He's the largest cat ever turned in to Maricopa county animal control.
Staff say the 36-pound feline is too big to fit in shelter kennels so meatball has been enjoying more spacious digs in a staff member's office.
They say meatball is very friendly... And can walk comfortably despite the extra pounds.
Animal control is trying to get him into a rescue organization that helps overweight cats lose weight.
