Fat cat still too fat to be adopted
A Dallas veterinarian on Monday said Skinny seems healthy, is on special food and gets exercise.
Dr. Brittney Barton says Skinny, who topped out at about 41 pounds, probably needs to reach 30 pounds before being considered for adoption.
The orange tabby was discovered Sept. 13 in Richardson. The creature was dubbed Skinny by shelter officials.
Critical thinking challenge: What special care would this cat require if you adopted him? How would you treat this cat differently than a cat that was not overweight?
You probably weigh more than this cat. Do you weigh twice as much? Three times as much? Four times as much or more?
