Britain’s fattest cat has finally found a home; ARTS/West to host an evening with Jonathan Richman

Today is Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2019. Here’s what you need to know:

Good morning, 

Dubbed Britain’s fattest cat, a tabby cat has finally found a home after being returned to an animal shelter four times.

Mitzi, the 17 pound cat, was rescued by the Woodside Sanctuary in 2017 and has gone through an owner’s death, a circumstantial change and another owner falling very ill. 

Mitzi’s newest owners wanted to adopt her right away, but can’t take care of her until they move into their new home. The Woodside Sanctuary will look after her until the family is able to officially adopt her in April. 

The nine-year-old cat has not been successful at finding a home until now, but she has been successful at adopting people over the years. The sanctuary staff has no idea how she got to be so big, but they believe it’s because of people excessively feeding her over the years.
