Das German FAT CAT!!

Workers at an animal home in the German city of Cologne said Friday they were looking for the owner of an overweight a cat abandoned outside its gates.

The black and white animal, which has been named Milka, weighed a massive 13 kg (29 pounds), more than three times the norm. It was unable to wash itself and could barely walk, the Koeln-Dellbrueck home said in a statement Friday.

The obese kitty was put on a crash diet and a course of antibiotics because of sores on its skin and workers had to find an extra-large quarantine box for it because none of the usual ones were big enough, the statement said.
"Whether it was out of misplaced love for animals or another reason, we just cannot understand such irresponsibility toward the cat," it added.
The home said it wanted to bring charges against the owner -- if he or she can be traced.

That's what happens when a feline is left with only pints of Guiness and stale beernuts. I hope the homo sapien responsible for introducing this feline to Oktoberfest is caught and held responsible.
