Princess Chunk’s origins revealed!

August 1, 2008

A 44-pound cat found lumbering around New Jersey was abandoned by a woman who said her home was foreclosed, an animal shelter official said Thursday.

The porky white cat found Saturday became a local media sensation and was dubbed “Princess Chunk”. But the animal is really a male whose name is Powder.

Since news of this chubby cat have been released the local animal shelter has received hundreds of phone calls from people wanting to adopt Powder.

The cat appeared Thursday on “Live With Regis and Kelly.” A veterinarian on the show examined it and confirmed he was indeed a male.

The largest house cat on record weighed 46 pounds, 15 ounces. It lived in Australia and died in the 80’s. Since then the Guinness World Records has dropped the category, fearing cat owners might harm their animals in an attempt to break the record.
