They call him Little Dude, but he’s got a big problem.
At 33 pounds as of his last weigh-in, the filled-out feline has a dark gray coat that, when he lies on his considerable belly, makes him look not unlike a baby seal.
But his average-size face, marked by big, soulful eyes and thick stripes of silver and black, hints at the slimmer 15-pound cat that lives beneath.
The goal, said Angela Jackson-Brunning — who is fostering Little Dude at her house in Costa Mesa — is to slowly get the cat down to a manageable weight before he is adopted by a “forever family.”
Potential adopters can view Little Dude’s Facebook profile to check on his progress.
