Chubbs is a Himalayan cat believed to be about 10 years old. Along his back, his long fur was severely matted, so Pasadena Humane Society employees shaved it off. Chubbs was far more comfortable with the mats gone, they said.

Chubbs weighs in at 26.36 pounds on June 20 -- down a couple of pounds since he arrived at the Pasadena Humane Society the week before.
