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?
