‘Britain’s fattest cat’ finally finds a home after being returned to shelter 4 times

The fifth time’s the charm for this fat feline.

Mitzi, dubbed “Britain’s fattest cat,” has finally found her fur-ever home — after getting dumped at a shelter four times.

The portly puss, who is 9 years old, arrived at Woodside Sanctuary in Plymouth, England in 2017 when her owner died, BBC News reported on Sunday.

At the time, she weighed a whopping 17 lbs.

The star-crossed cat was adopted four times — but never ended up in a permanent home.

“It’s very unusual for a cat to be returned this many times but sadly she’s just been so unlucky,” said shelter manager Helen Lecointe. “It’s been ever so sad for Mitzi. There was an owner death, a change of circumstance and one owner became very ill.”

Desperate to find Mitzi a happy ending, the stray was placed on a strict diet and earned a new lease on her nine lives after slimming down to 11 pounds.

Adoptions offers poured in from around the world but the now-skinny kitty will go to a family that’s already familiar to her — relatives of one of her previous owners who died.

“We had offers from the US, Sweden and the Middle East, but we’re so pleased that we’ve found an owner who already knows her and loves her,” Lecointe said.

The shelter will continue to look after Mitzi until April, when her newest owners move into a new home.
