Fat cat named Skinny up for adoption in Texas
RICHARDSON, Texas (AP) - Don't be fooled by the name: Skinny the cat is one hefty feline. And all 19kg of her needs a home.
A Dallas-area animal shelter has cared for the 5-year-old orange tabby since getting a call about a stray in a yard about a week ago.
Ms Kim Chapin with Richardson Animal Services said on Friday that Skinny's "very sweet" - and the largest cat she's seen in 21 years with the shelter.
Not surprising. United States government growth charts show Skinny weighs about as much as the average 4-year-old child.
