did everyone see the news about the 44 pound cat that was roming the streets in New jersey? the shelter named it "princess chunky" chunk for short. come to find out the largest cat ever was 46 pounds. today, the owner came forward and said she couldnt keep "him" named powder, because she lost her home. He is up for adoption now.

40+ pound cats!?! They must just be ENORMOUS!!! I cannot even imagine how it could walk. I thought my cat was fat and he was almost 10 pounds! OMG! Someone needs to put little Powder on a diet! That is insane. That is the weight of a medium sized dog! [b][i] Have a great day and happy myLotting!![/i][/b]

Isn't there a certain breed of cat that becomes huge like Princess? I'll have to look it up, but I think so. They are big, long and tall, but very heavy, too. I believe this cat was on Regis and Kelly yesterday, but I missed it, so I'm not sure if it was the same one. The preview showed it as being white and huge, and I think they had said it was from the humane shelter, so it probably was the same one. No wonder the owner stepped up to claim it back, it is now a famous cat!

yes it would be nice if concerned people helped the owner get another home so she could keep him.

My cat Scoots - My kittie Scooots, she is cute but mean.
Yeah I saw it, I live in New Jersey, can not remember where the cat was though. He was so cute, the last I heard is that the owner came forward and reclaimed the cat. Many people were ready to adopt him. If he was not claimed in seven days then he would have been put up for adoption. How can you just put your cat or any other animal on the street, anything could have happened, gotten hit by a car etc. It was a happy ending but she should have been charged with cruelty to animals, she could have brought him to the shelter. There was another article about a homeless man, his dog got sick, and he left him at the animal shelter with a note, stating that he was homeless and that he could not afford to take the dog to the vet, and would they please euthanize the dog. Well the shelter had the dog taken care of and when the man called to find out the fate of the dog, he was elated to find out that his dog was okay. They were reunited and what a reunion that was. Pets are so precious.
