Is Sprinkles the World's Fattest Cat? Video!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Sprinkles, a domestic short-haired kitty, is one of the world`s fattest felines " weighing in at 32 pounds.

The chubby cat is being cared for by the SOS Sea Isle City Cats in New Jersey after they found her in a foreclosed home.

`We didn`t know anything about her owners,` Stacy Olandt, who serves as her primary caregiver, told Barcroft Media. `I think it`s pretty clear that they didn`t know how to properly take care of a cat.` "

New York Post

Sprinkles who is currently living in a feline rescue facility, was found in a foreclosed home. You don`t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out why the house was foreclosed, the kitty`s owners went broke feeding the fat kitty.

Sprinkles has a refined palate, she turned her nose at cat food when she first arrived at the shelter. The shelter`s employees speculate that her diet consisted of gourmet cat food and human food.

Sprinkles` hefty weight may make her look cuddly and adorable, but all that extra weight makes walking difficult and turning over an impossibility.

My kitty, Tico, tips the scales at 25 pounds, but he has no trouble walking or running, he chases my other cat when she gets on his nerve.

The SOS Sea Isle City Cats employees aren`t pussyfooting around; they have Sprinkles on a strict diet and an exercise regimen.

It will be about a year before this tubby kitty is ready for adoption, let`s hope this adorable cat gets adopted by a loving family who won`t go broke feeding her.
