DALLAS (AP) — An overweight stray cat found nearly two months ago in North Texas has slimmed down to 37 pounds but is still too fat to be adopted.


A Dallas veterinarian on Monday said Skinny seems healthy, is on special food and gets exercise.


Dr. Brittney Barton says Skinny, who topped out at about 41 pounds, probably needs to reach 30 pounds before being considered for adoption.


The orange tabby was discovered Sept. 13 in Richardson. The creature was dubbed Skinny by shelter officials, who at first said the cat was male, then female.


Skinny was taken to East Lake Pet Orphanage, where Barton determined he's a neutered male. Barton says Skinny didn't tolerate much handling due to muscle soreness associated with his size so it was difficult to confirm his gender.
