BLACKWOOD, N.J. - Two television talk shows are reportedly welcoming the latest fat cat to come to New York.Princess Chunk is a 44-pound feline found wandering the southern New Jersey community of Voorhees last Saturday.She's so "purrfectly" big, an animal shelter had to weigh her on a doggie scale. She’s only a couple pounds lighter than the heaviest cat on record.The Camden County Animal Shelter has been looking for her owner and trying to get the cat on a diet.But now, she's headed to New York. She's scheduled to appear Thursday on "Live with Regis and Kelly," according to the show’s publicist.And the animal shelter says she’ll be on "Good Morning America" Friday.The cat's owners have until Saturday to reclaim her; then, she'll be up for adoption.

Update! The owners have been found, sorry no chunky cat for you.

Sounds like Princess Chunk belongs in Washington (D.C.) instead of NYC.

Bit of a shame that poor Prince Chunk is being carted about for TV appearances when he's already too stressed to eat. Poor fella. But it's good that he'll get a decent home after seeming abandonment.

Thanks for the update Mortimer.

Hopefully poor Chunk won't be returned to the idiots who overfed him and then turned him out into the streets to fend for himself!! He deserves a good home.
