|Death: ||May 5, 2012|
Santa Fe County
New Mexico, USA
Meow, the fat cat whose 39-pound girth helped raise awareness about obesity in pets, has died of lung failure.
The Santa Fe Animal Shelter and Humane Society announced Meow's death, saying the two-year-old cat passed away Saturday afternoon after suffering respiratory distress and then pulmonary failure. The orange and white tabby was brought into the shelter when its 87-year-old owner could no longer care for him. The shelter put the obese cat on a diet in hopes he could lose enough weight to be adopted.
He was in the care of a foster home at the time of his death. His feline weight roughly translated into a human weight of more than 600 pounds.
