35-pound tabby cat seeking to slim down and find new home

UPI News Service, 06/16/2017 

Staff at an animal shelter in Washington, D.C. are working to help a 35-pound rescue cat shed weight and find a new home.

Humane Rescue Alliance shared video Thursday of Symba the hefty, 6-year-old, orange tabby cat exercising on a circular treadmill device as he is prepared for adoption.

"HRA staff have seen a lot -- but we've never seen a 35 pound cat! At 6-years-old, Symba is bigger than a lion cub and we know he'd be much more comfortable if he slimmed down a bit," the rescue group said.

The staff at HRA are seeking a new owner for Symba who is willing to provide a loving home and help guide him to a healthier weight.

"If you're up for the challenge, he'd love to go home with you and continue his weight loss journey," HRA said. "This handsome fellow is sweet, mellow, and waiting for a new home where he can thrive."

Symba arrived at the rescue group after his previous owner moved to a nursing facility that doesn't allow pets.

HRA spokesman Matt Williams told Today that Symba needs to lose at least 15 pounds to maintain a healthy weight and will require an owner willing to hold him to a strict diet and exercise regimen.

"As much as we love Symba, as cute as he is, his obesity is serious," Williams said. "He really needs to lose the weight to live a good life."
