We have sad news to report about Tiny Tim -- the cat that gained notoriety for being very overweight has cancer.

A veterinarian says a recent test revealed an aggressive tumor in one of the cat's legs, but it doesn't appear to have spread to the cat's chest. A CT scan was done on the cat Friday at Texas A&M University.

Tiny Tim will spend the weekend at his home, Southside Place Animal Hospital, then go back to College Station for surgery next week.
