Obese Cat Left At A Shelter, But Now He Needs A Second Chance And A Workout Buddy

Fat cats provide some of the best possible pictures. Their pudgy tummies are the ultimate form of hilarity, and if you happen to own a fat cat you know how cuddly they are.

My cat was a tubster, and honestly I didn't think I would see a fatter cat than her in my lifetime.

But now Symba at the Humane Rescue Alliance in Washington, D.C. has made me rethink my previous opinion.

Symba was dropped off at the HRA after his previous owner was moving and could no longer care for him.

Sure, he's bigger than most cats at 35lbs, but he's also extremely well-loved.

"He’s very sweet and loves to be petted," a shelter spokesperson said. "Other than being overweight, Symba is healthy."

But Symba is trying to make some changes...

It's still pretty unclear how Symba became so overweight, but one thing is for sure: it needs to change. The shelter has already got the big guy on a strict regime of diet and exercise, but whoever adopts him will need to continue that routine.

Basically, Symba needs a workout buddy.

"Symba needs a home where his adopter will be diligent with an exercise and diet program that will help get this big guy to a healthy weight," the shelter said.

Maybe Symba should get in touch with Holly, the cat who is taking swimming lessons to lose weight.

If you would like to help Symba reach his goal weight, and also give him a forever home, you can contact Humane Rescue Alliance for more information!
