Shelter gets 36-pound cat, Meatball

PHOENIX – 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.

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 said Meatball is extremely friendly and can comfortably walk despite his weight.
