37-pound tubby tabby Biscuit in need of home

ST. CHARLES, Mo. — At 37 pounds, Biscuit is about the right weight for a 4-year-old — human, that is.

A St. Louis-area animal shelter is trying to find a new home for the sweet tabby with a sweet tooth.

Biscuit’s salad days were spent pigging out, and now at roughly three times the weight of a healthy adult cat, he’s restricted to about a cup of diet food per day.

His first owner, a disabled woman who fed him lots of treats, brought him to the St. Charles Animal Control shelter about a year ago because she could no longer care for him, Teresa Gilley, the shelter’s lead animal control officer, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

“She didn’t mean the cat any harm,” Gilley said. “I just think she didn’t know any better.”

Another woman took him in but had to return him about a week ago because her new apartment doesn’t allow pets, she said.

Gilley said the tubby tabby isn’t crazy about his new low-calorie diet, but he has begun adjusting to it. When he arrived, Biscuit could only take a few steps before lying down and panting, but now he’s showing increased energy.
