Officials at the Camden County Animal Shelter are trying to figure out how someone lost a 44-pound cat.

The cat was found outside, without a collar, in Voorhees.

The largest tabby on record weighed 46 pounds, 15 ounces. That cat, who lived in Australia, died in the 1980s.

Shelter officials are calling the kitty "Princess Chunk."

Shelter volunteer Deborah Wright tells The Courier Post of Cherry Hill the cat is built like a quarterback.

The cat's owner has until Saturday to reclaim her. After that, "Chunk" will be eligible for adoption.
