Meatball The Massive Moggy: 2.5 Stone Cat On Road To Recovery
Meatball the cat tips the scales at 2.5 stone - four times the weight of an average cat. The four-year-old was brought to Maricopa County Animal Care and Control by owners who could no longer care for him. Meatball, who weighs more than a three-year-old child, had to be weighed on scales for dogs as he was too heavy for cat scales. It is thought Meatball's previous owners fed him food for humans, which resulted in his super-sized appearance.
