After People Went Crazy Over This 26lb Chonky Cat, He Finally Gets Adopted

The internet is probably the best thing that has happened to cats since wet food was invented. Once again, it proved that our beautiful cats are amazing and deserve a loving home no matter how they look. Last month, animal shelter Morris Animal Refuge located in Philadelphia challenged the internet’s love for adorable cats by introducing a rare unit – Mr. B, a cat who weighs a hefty 26 pounds. And while it’s quite reasonable to think that this cat may struggle to find a home due to its massive size, people refused to accept it.

It’s hard to say if the shelter expected that sort of attention, but it was well deserved. The tweet introducing the adorable fat cat stirred waves across the internet instantly and gathered 14.5k retweets and over 50k likes. No one should underestimate people’s love for chonks!

“We saw this Instagram photo four hours after it was posted (this is actually the very screenshot I took when I saw him, and we agreed instantly we loved BeeJay already). Here’s to sharing Mr. B’s story (keeping his name and still calling him BeeJay, too!) We’ve got a long way to go and plenty to share (he’s doing great, btw!)” wrote the new owners.

Here’s how people reacted to Mr. B.
