Prince Chunk, the cat who became famous when an animal shelter weighed him at 44 pounds, just shy of a world record, died in his sleep last Sunday.

Prince Chunk was found wandering a neighborhood in New Jersey in 2008 after his owner was foreclosed on. A new family took him in, but MSNBC reports in this video that the 10-year-old feline suffered from heart disease.
