Tiny Tim, Houston’s fat cat, succumbs to cancer
Tiny Tim, a Houston cat whose long journey to lose weight was cut short by an aggressive cancer, died Friday at the clinic where he lived.
Diagnosed in mid-January, the cat everyone called Tiny had been living comfortably with the disease until the last couple of days, said Dr. Alice Frei, owner of Southside Place Animal Hospital.
“This morning he ate a little breakfast, tottered up front and sat down and just stopped breathing,” Frei said. “We gave him oxygen and started CPR but we couldn’t get him back.”
