ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) — A St. Louis-area animal shelter is housing a really fat cat that needs a new home.
Biscuit weighs in at a whopping 37 pounds a normal adult cat weighs 10 to 15 pounds. He is morbidly obese and that is a concern for officials at the St. Charles Animal Control shelter.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the shelter has put Biscuit on a diet.
Little is known about the cat. He is neutered and is believed to be about 4. He has had two previous owners the first liked to feed Biscuit treats.
Officials at the shelter say Biscuit is sweet-natured, but any prospective owner will need to keep him on a strict diet.
