Where the cat came from is anyone's guess. Unfortunately, he wasn't microchipped or wearing an ID, so it's unclear if he has an owner. One thing is certain, however — this kitty hasn't been underfed. Staffers at the shelter have since dubbed him "Chubbs."
Whatever his past, Chubbs was in need of help. His fur was severely matted, a problem his rescuers at the shelter were able to resolve with a careful shave.
They're hoping to tackle his weight problem next; it's unhealthy, of course, for cats to be so heavy. He's so big, the shelter is barely equipped to handle him.
"Chubbs has taken up residence in a staff office because he’s too large to fit comfortably in a kennel," rescuers wrote online. "He has a sweet disposition, but his heavy load makes it uncomfortable to move around freely."
Still, Chubbs is getting plenty of love in the meantime.
