The 37-pound cat lived at St. Charles Animal Control, and they helped try to get the cat's weight under control while looking for a new home for the tubby tabby. After they went public with Biscuit's story, the St. Charles Animal Control shelter received over 100 offers to adopt the cat.
Ultimately, Biscuit went to a couple in the area who had another fat cat at home. Ed and Lisa Pyatt have a fat cat named Max, and they hope that he and Biscuit will be good buddies as they get to know each other.
A 37-pound cat like Biscuit is about three times the size of an average cat. His previous owner apparently enjoyed giving him lots of treats. Shelter worker Teresa Gilley said,
"She didn't mean the cat any harm. I just think she didn't know any better."
Even so, Biscuit's new owners will have to keep him on a strict diet so that he is able to function properly. Have you ever owned a fat cat?
