Sad…this media darling's weight finally got the best of him.
As reported earlier, Meow, a cat weighing a nearly unBELIEVable 39 pounds, was on his way to purging his bulk after his 87 year old gave him up to a shelter for adoption.
Sadly, Meow has died before he beat his battle with the bulge.
Santa Fe's Animal Shelter & Humane Society director Mary Martin broke the news on Facebook:
I am devastated to share with you that the respiratory distress that Meow was experiencing last week took his life.
Although four different veterinarians worked with Meow, we were unable to stop the progression of what turned out to be pulmonary failure.
Meow's life was cut short at two years old
You'll be missed, Meow!
