As millions of Americans hit the gym on the quest for the perfect summer body, a 29lb cat began an exercise regimen of his own. Earlier this week, the 10-year-old Himalayan mix took himself for an afternoon walk down a busy Altadena street. Luckily, he was found by a good Samaritan who lugged him to the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA for care.
Chubbs, as he is now known, was in desperate need of grooming upon his arrival at the shelter. He suffered from deep, painful mats along his back. It took our staff a couple hours to clean him up.
Chubbs has taken up residence in a staff office because he’s too large to fit comfortably in a kennel. He has a sweet disposition, but his heavy load makes it uncomfortable to move around freely.
We are currently looking for his owner. He has no ID tag or microchip.
