Cats and kittens arrive at Kitty City for all kinds of reasons, but all of its residents are available for adoption. The facility has room for more than 50 moggies, some of whom may be undesirable to adopters because they are older or have behavioral issues. Alternatively, rescue workers may have plucked the pussies from kill-shelters, saving them from unnecessary death.

That’s how one pussycat called Pavarotti wound up a resident of Kitty City. In July 2017, a team from the feline facility had arrived at a local pound to pick up a momma cat and her kittens. However, while they were there Pavarotti caught their attention. And it’s not hard to see why – he’s as similarly plus-sized as his rotund opera-singing namesake.

As the team passed the kennel Pavarotti was occupying, they couldn’t help but notice that the big tom seemed to be squeezed into the small space. In fact, the poor pussy was so massive that he had hardly any room to move. He just sat there peering out, hoping someone would one day save him from the confines of the kennel.
