CBS News Video Clip on YouTube--Princess Chunk, Fat Cat
Is anybody looking for a 44 pound (20 kg) fat cat? She is huge! This fat cat has been a talk of town in USA for a few days. An animal shelter in New Jersey has been taking a temporary custody of this fat cat. An animal lover is taking care of it in the mean time.
The largest cat on record weighed 46 pounds, 15 ounces. That cat, who lived in Australia, died in the 1980s. The Guinness World Records has since dropped the category, fearing cat owners might harm their animals in an attempt to break the record.
This fat cat was wondering on streets and found last Saturday. This cat appeared on several TV news coverages, and her former owner came forward on 7/31/08. The former owner could not keep the fat cat, because her home was foreclosed, as a result of this bad economy.
It also turned out that this cat was not a princess but a prince. He is a 10 year old cat, and called "Powder" by his former owner.
This cat will get a full medical check up next Tuesday. I hope he will find a new home soon.
Updated 8/8/2008 13:35, 44 pound cat, Prince Chunk, was adopted ! A family in southern New Jersey will get the 44-pound "Prince Chunk" next week, according to the Camden County Animal Shelter. The shelter won't disclose the family's identity.
About 500 people applied to adopt the 10-year-old cat found lumbering around Voorhees.
Thousands of people from as far away as London and California called to inquire about adopting the cat, Harr said. Unfortunately, she said no one who contacted the shelter was interested in adopting any of the more than 200 other cats and kittens in the shelter's care.
