Buddha the Cat slims down, gets placed in foster care

Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Buddha, a feline who weighed in at more than 30 pounds, is continuing to make progress toward his goal weight of 20 pounds.  

The feisty cat has shed six pounds so far since he came to the Metro Animal Control in August with the use of an underwater treadmill.

Currently, Buddha is in the care of a foster family and has been diagnosed with a congenital heart defect. He remains in stable condition with the help of a cardiologist.

Due to his recently diagnosed heart condition, Buddha no longer continues treadmill treatment. His diet is now controlled though food only.

Buddha will eventually be placed up for adoption.
