Meow the 40-pound cat! Meet Meow, a cat fighting to lose 10 pounds so he can be found a new home. The two-year-old orange and white tabby tips the scale at almost 40 pounds, and the Santa Fe Animal Shelter is on a mission to get the feline back into shape. Meow's 87-year-old owner could no longer take care of him, so the pet was turned over to the shelter in southeastern New Mexico for help. New Mexico - May 2012 Supplied by WENN.com
