PHOENIX (January 31, 2014) The Maricopa County, Ariz., Animal Care and Control recently received a 36-pound cat at one of its shelters in the Phoenix area.
The cat named "Meatball" is staying temporarily in an office at the shelter because he's too large to fit into a standard kennel.
He’s not available for adoption, but 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 walk comfortably despite his weight.
