[August 09, 2008]  BLACKWOOD, N.J. (AP) -- Fat, happy and no longer homeless.

HardwareThat describes life for the 44-pound New Jersey cat who became an overnight sensation.

A vet has found "Prince Chunk" healthy aside from his weight. The big cat doesn't have a thyroid condition, after all.

The vet also has prescribed a high-protein, low-carb diet for the tubby tabby, who is within three pounds of the heaviest on record.

Some 400 people applied to adopt the 10-year-old cat who once was called "Powder." He was found lumbering around Voorhees after his owner lost her home to foreclosure.

New York's Daily News reports the Camden County Animal Shelter has selected a south Jersey family who already has two cats.

"Prince Chunk" is to move next week.
