30-Pound Cat Having Trouble Finding New Home: Would You Adopt Him?

This fat cat is just as cute and sweet as any other feline. But weighing in at a whopping 30 pounds, SpongeBob is having a hard time finding a new owner. "I think people are intimidated," Kendra Mara, associate director of the Animal Haven shelter in SoHo neighborhood in Manhattan (where SpongeBob was dropped off two months ago) told The New York Post. "They think they’ll need more space for him, but really they don’t."



SpongeBob was apparently allowed to eat unlimited amounts of food all day before his owner had to go into a hospice. In fact, he weighed 33 pounds when he arrived at the shelter. But he's already lost three pounds. "We eliminated dry food and put him on an exercise program," Mara told the Post. "Even if he just gets down to 24 or 25 pounds, that will make a huge difference on his body." Would you give SpongeBob a new home?

    I don't want him, not because he's fat, but because I don't want any cats. I have my Wire Fox Terrier and they don't do well with cats, I abhor litter boxes and my dog eats cat crap! My daughter had a cat that looked like SpongeBob who could break into their pantry and eat at will. She finally put better locks on it and he's a very svelte sleek cat right now.

    That's... cute for some reason.

    But still, I would try to get it to lose weight. Being that heavy is not good for your health, whether you are human or cat.

    My aunt has a cat that huge, but black/brown fur, and her name is Diesel, cause when she purrs, it sounds like a diesel truck, but it is extremely cute.

    I would love him but I already have a catperson, and he would be jealous.
    If I did have Sponge Bob, he would be on a strict diet and exercise program. Excess weight causes animals, just like people, to be more susceptible to diabetes and other diseases.
    Sure a cute, chubby animal is sweet, too, but dangerous for their health.
