Fat Cat Dies

No, settle down, no idiot fat cat politician bought the farm…tooo bad! But rather, Meow the cat. 39 pounds of fur and purr!

The extra pounds that propelled Meow the shelter cat to national celebrity have killed him.

The 5-year-old, 39-pound cat died Saturday of respiratory complications related to his girth, Santa Fe Animal Shelter executive director Mary Martin said Monday.

The huge but personable feline became the subject of nationwide fame last month after appearing with Anderson Cooper and on the “Today” show — where Meow met actor Hugh Grant — as part of a media blitz to warn pet owners of the dangers of pet obesity.
