On 15 Sep 1954 a 15-year-old castrated male tabby was admitted at the Angell Memorial Hospital in acute distress. It had been resting quietly shortly before, when it suddenly got up, crying out and with the left foreleg dragging. On examination the cat was seen to be exceedingly obese (18 pounds), with sparse, brittle hair over the flanks and very flabby, atonic muscles.
