Country's heaviest cat dies at age 2
The nation's heaviest cat, Meow dies at only 2 years old. He had a weight of 39 pounds, which equivalent to a human at around 600 pounds! O_o Meow's 87 years old owner dropped him off at an animal shelter, claiming she could no longer care for him. The cat was immediately put on a weight loss plan, but he developed respiratory complications and passed away before the plan could work. Very sad story!

I wonder why people allow their pets to get so fat. They are fully responsible for what happen to their pets' health. Sadly the cat had to die at only age 2, it's like a human died in teens.

Pet owners need to raise awareness of the country's growing pet-obesity problem.

Fat cat is more comfortable for us to touch and it looks lovely.But for itself,it must be hard to run.Worsely,fattness will lead to many diseases,just like our human beings.Therefore,the owners should pay attention to the diet of their pets in order to keep the pets healthy.And i also wonder why Meow's 87 years old owners dropped it off at Animal Shelter.Sad story.

The 87 year old woman probably dropped it off because she couldn't afford to feed it. Smile But maybe her own health was bad enough to where she couldn't take care of the cat.

Ah, that's quite sad. Sad I wonder what it was fed.
My favourite colour is green, my favourite number is 19.

You see it with people; why are pets any different? Death by obesity! Even one extra pound on something the size of a cat puts extra strain on the heart. And cats have a problem we don't. If they get too fat, they can't reach their rear end to wash it.

I was wondering that too. How the heck can a cat get that big!! The cat owner is obviously at fault.

Death by obesity is something completely new... Not only people, but also pets are getting fatter and fatter. It is sad. People and animals used to die from starvation. Now the opposite.

The moment we decide to get a pet, it is the moment we decide to accept full responsibilities. The owners should take full responsibility for what's happening to their pets. We should always do what's the best for the pets we decided to take in. Including not to kill them with obesity.

My sentiments exactly.

I guess so,maybe she was too lonely.Before she dropped the cat off she treated it as her baby,feeding it with much nice food.But when her health got bad,she couldn't take care of it as before.Even sometimes she maybe forgot to feed it.Finally,she decided to put it into the Animal Selther.

RE: Country's heaviest cat dies at age 2
Being old is not a good excuse. Either you can take care of a pet, or you can't. Everyone should assess their own ability to take care of the pet before get a pet at all. If they are incapable of provide the pet proper care, then they should forget about the idea of having a pet. Ditching a pet because you feed him to be super fat is not a good excuse either.

RE: Country's heaviest cat dies at age 2
I agree with Ramm. I'm at an age now where I have to consider every new cat I take in. How long will it live, and how old will I be then? A cat can potentially live 15 to 20 years. Will it outlive me? Will I be in any shape to take care of it by then? Trying to re-home a senior cat is extremely difficult.
