Santa Fe, NM (CNN) - A cat who made headlines for his large size has died.
This is video of Meow, a 39 pound orange and white tabby cat who was brought to the Santa Fe, New Mexico animal shelter last month.
His caretakers at the animal shelter put Meow on a high-protein diet to help him shed some pounds.
Meow reportedly died of lung failure on Saturday.
He weighed more than three times the ideal weight for a cat his size.
