Garfield is a 40 pound cat who was dropped off at a no kill shelter last week. Now the staff there is trying to get the cat to lose 20 pounds. First of all, I'm glad the owners dropped him off at a no kill shelter rather than the streets, but who could give up such a cute looking cat. 40 pounds? That is bigger than most dogs. Apparently Garfield is larger than the world record largest cat which died last month in New Mexico.
