PORTLAND – If you’re achieving your New Year’s resolutions to lose weight, there’s a cat up for adoption that could use your help.
“Obese cats are no laughing matter, and we will give a free bag of low-calorie cat food and a laser pointer for exercise to whoever adopts Walter,” Oregon Humane Society executive director Sharon Harmon said.
