Julie Bank, President/CEO of the Pasadena Humane Society, said:

We were shocked at the size of this kitty. It’s important to remember that pet obesity is a real problem. Like humans, pets need to be fed a balanced diet and receive daily exercise to thrive.

If you suspect your pet might be packing a few extra pounds, it’s best to work closely with a veterinarian to get them back on the right track. Sudden changes in diet and activity level can be dangerous, a slow and professionally-monitored approach is always recommended.

As for tubby Taft, he’s now looking for a new family who will help him achieve his campaign goals for 2017. Interested parties can email or call 626 792 7151 to find out more information about bringing this presidential pussycat home with you.
