Cat of the Week: Meatloaf in Westhampton (NY)

Each week in this space, we feature a senior cat in need of adoption or sponsorship. Please remember all the great older cats in shelters. They make great companions, and they (probably) won’t climb the curtains! Adopt a senior cat, and give him or her the best years of their lives.

This week we’re introducing Meatloaf. This handsome guy has been through some terrible times. He lived with a person who overfed him, causing him to become so morbidly obese he could not walk on his paws. Then his person had to go into a nursing home, and the family did not take care of him. Some real estate agents found him in the home and threw him outside. (Hiss!) He wound up in a shelter, but it wasn’t until the kind folks at Bideawee came into the picture that Meatloaf was really safe. (Yay!) They took him in and put him on a special diet, and he has lost two pounds already.

Meatloaf is 8 years old. His size is listed as “XL,” and the lucky family who adopts him will have to continue his special diet so he can trim down further. Despite how some people have treated him, Meatloaf is still a very gentle guy and is very affectionate. He just needs someone to love who will love him back. Maybe you?

Meatloaf is currently at Bideawee’s Westhampton location. Learn more about here.

Can’t adopt but still want to help Meatloaf and other cats at Bideawee? Learn how you can sponsor a pet, become a Bideawee member, or make a donation.


  1. Every time I see one like Meatloaf I want to take him/her. But with 10 rescued cats right now...

  2. What a handsome boy! So precious ... you can see so much in those eyes :)

  3. Poor kitty, I hope he gets his forever home soon.
