Arizona shelter has 36-pound catJanuary 30, 2014 @ 10:28 am
PHOENIX (AP) - An Arizona animal shelter has a rather large cat on its hands.
The Maricopa County Animal Care and Control recently received a 36-pound cat at one of its shelters in the Phoenix area.
The cat named "Meatball" is temporarily staying in an office at the shelter because he's too large to fit into a standard kennel.
The cat is not available for adoption.
Instead, the shelter is trying to place him with a rescue organization that helps overweight cats.
The shelter says Meatball is extremely friendly and says he can comfortably walk despite his weight.
