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.
