A 44-Pound Cat Was Abandoned

The largest cat on record weighed 46 pounds, 15 ounces. That cat, who lived in Australia, died in the 1980s. The Guinness World Records has since dropped the category, fearing cat owners might harm their animals in an attempt to break the record.
"Holly CAT!!!"

Powder was originally known as "Princess Chunk" until the producers brought out a veterinarian to determine it's gender.
