We were sad to learn that famous New Jersey fat cat Prince Chunk has passed away. Chunk was discovered two years ago -- a stray, wandering the streets of Camden, New Jersey -- and became the live-in mascot of the Camden County Animal Shelter. He lived there for several months before being adopted by a local family. The shelter put him on a diet and he managed to lose several pounds, but just last week was diagnosed with heart disease. He died in his sleep over the weekend.
Though Prince Chunk is gone, our love for fluffy fat cats is not. After the jump, some of the furriest, fluffiest, pleasantly plump cats we've ever seen.
