Odin weighed over 20 pounds when I started volunteering at the shelter. This was down from the 30 he weighed when he got there.
Yes, Odin. He was godlike in that he was massive, but I'm pretty sure Norse mythology has no room for extra-large goofy-ass four-legged gods who shit in a box.
Odin was a delightful cat, if needy. It was easy to theorize that his owner fed him every time he wanted attention. You could hug him like a teddy bear. He loved me because I was the only one who would pick him up. He did weigh less than a case of beer.
He didn't lose enough weight and he didn't lose it in time. Like so many overweight people and animals before him, he had a heart attack and died.
Hey, housecats get memorial posts, some shelter cats should get 'em too.
