MEOW, the 39lb Cat DIES of obesity!

Meow‘ the cat that drew America’s attention when he was given up for adoption

by his 87 year old owner.

If you recall, Meow had to lose 10lbs before he could be put up for adoption & he had lost 2lbs until he died from

respiratory failure!

Mary Martin of the Santa Fe Animal Shelter released this death announcement to Meow’s fans on Facebook:

I am devastated to share with you that the respiratory distress that Meow was experiencing last week (the reason we did not do his weigh-in) took his life at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 5 As many of you are aware, Meow began wheezing last Thursday in his foster home, Although four different veterinarians worked with Meow, we were unable to stop the progression of what turned out to be pulmonary failure.

R.I.P. Meow!
