You have probably heard of other princes, like Prince Charming. Well, there is a prince who is more valiant, caring, and definitely “healthy.” His name is Prince Chunk (aka Princess Chunk, Captain Chunk, real name: Powder).
Here is his story. On July 28, 2008, he was found abandoned on the beach of Voorhees, NJ by animal control and weighed in at forty-four pounds. At the shelter, he was notorious for his incompatibility. His owner, an elderly Voorhees resident, had abandoned him because she didn’t have enough money to take care of him. After being adopted by a different family, he lost lost 22 pounds. He has only fallen two pounds short of the world record . He has made television appearances on Live with Regis and Kelly, Fox News, Good Morning America, and MSNBC. Sadly, this short-haired tabby died on November 21, 2010 from a heart disease.
However, his legacy lives on. His charity (The Prince Chunk Foundation) donates money to families that are not able to afford pets. As a result, Prince Chunk is one of the greatest princes that ever lived. Here is his website: http://www.princechunkfoundation.org/.
