RICHARDSON, Texas -- Don't be fooled by the name: Skinny the cat is one hefty feline. And all 41 pounds of her needs a home. 


A Dallas-area animal shelter has cared for the 5-year-old orange tabby since getting a call about a stray in a yard about a week ago. 


Kim Chapin with Richardson Animal Services said Friday that Skinny's "very sweet" -- and the largest cat she's seen in 21 years with the shelter. 


Skinny weighs about as much as the average 4-year-old child.
