His heinous owner should be fined for animal abuse for letting this cat become so obese and unhealthy.

So sad. I am sure he suffered as obesity causes pain in many ways.

Yes, sad news but the owner should be penalised. My son's ex-girlfriend had a dog 70 kilos OVERweight - put on a diet/healthy eating plan too late, Alexa had to be euthanised because of internal organ failure. Thanks for sharing letting us know, BarbCat!

Obsesity is a severe illness but it can be cured via a special diet. I know because my beloved cat is 14 years old and only weights 2,4 kg. People have to understand that pets deserve good food mainly available at the vet's.
Poor Meow, he was a good boy. Sad to learn about his death. Rest in Peace beautiful cat.

This is such a disappointment. After learning about Mr. Meowski's weight loss, I was hopeful that he would be able to slim down to a manageable size.

I don't think cat obesity is cute. All those extra pounds put strain on his organs and I'm sure he suffered.
