Tiny the (formerly) fat cat loses half his weight, gets adopted

Before and After!



Just over a year ago, shelter workers at the Fredericton SPCA in New Brunswick, Canada, found Tiny the cat in a cardboard box near their front door. He weighed over 30 pounds and was severely stressed.

But life has changed a lot for Tiny since then. After a year of focused diet and exercise, he's lost half his body weight and now, he's been adopted.

The SPCA held an adoption day party Saturday, where Tiny’s foster parent Nancy Garon made their relationship official.

“It was a nice way to celebrate all the work, dedication and time that went into Tiny,” LeeAnn Haggerty, the director of education at the shelter, told TODAY.com. “She’s really bonded with him and it’s nice for everyone to know that he’ll be doing well in Nancy’s care.”

4. My little tri-paw weighed in at 55.4 pounds in July. That's why they were reluctant to

amputate his front leg for cancer. He went on the Science Diet R/D plan and now weighs 40 pounds! We have decided to try and get him down to 35 because the less he weighs the better for the remaining front leg.

His picture, after his amputation 12/11, is here.
