PHOENIX - If there were a "biggest loser" for cats, a phoenix feline would be its number one contestant.
Meatball, he weighs 36 pounds.That's 24 pounds heavier than the average cat.
Meatball was turned in to an animal shelter after being shuffled from home to home.
The staff says he can only take a few steps before laying down to rest.
They say Meatball will need a caring family and medical help to lose enough weight to be healthy.
