Chubbs the cat has been rescued from the streets of Altadena.
Yvette Viola and her husband rescued the 29-pound kitty and took him into their home. The formerly homeless Himalayan replaces their 23 pound cat, who recently passed away.
”When I saw the news report about him last week a friend of mine sent me the link and said, ‘hey look, I saw your new cat.’ I actually went to see him last week and he’s just so darned cute!”
She says he’s already feeling right at home.
“He actually slept on the bed with me. I have a bed for him. But he was just like, ‘Nah, I just think I’ll sleep up here.’ ”
Chubbs is about twice as heavy as she should be and is pre-diabetic.
“He definitely needs to lose some pounds.”
Yvette Viola was a guest on McIntyre in the Morning.
