Remember this fat little beast? Prince Chunk became a media sensation when his owner lost her home to foreclosure
and set him loose on the streets of Camden, N.J.
When His Royal Chunkiness was rescued, he weighed in at a whopping 44 lbs., which was nearly a world record.
His "forever family," the Damianis of Washington Township, N.J., say that the scale was broken and that Prince Chunk weighed 23 lbs. when they got him.
It doesn't take much, however, to see that he's still a tubcat of the highest order.
Now the Damianis (who beat out 500 other applicants to adopt Chunk) want to start the Prince Chunk Foundation
, which would help people continue to take care of their pets during the economic downturn by giving them vouchers for pet food and emergency veterinarian services.
Prince Chunk shares his home with three dogs and one other cat, which he could easily smother to death with one of his hind legs.
