Unbelievably Big 26-Pound Cat, Named ‘Big Boi Mr. B’ Is Looking For A Home And People Are Truly Obsessed With Him
Published in Aug 2019 / Updated in Aug 2021
Are you looking to own a huge, cuddly cat? Well, today’s your lucky day. An enormously large cat weighing 26 pounds is the newest obsession on the internet, and he needs a home.
Morris Animal Refuge, based in Philadelphia, tweeted photos of this hefty tabby, named Beejay or Mr. B, in the arms of the shelter’s attendant, Lacy Curtis.
According to Morris Animal Refuge’s post, which has earned more than 49,000 likes on Twitter and over 6,000 shares on Facebook, Mr. B. is a “jumbo-sized package of fluff & love.”
The shelter wrote:
“OMG, big boi Mr. B is a CHONK. He’s a chonk of a chonk. He redefines the term. Can you guess how much he weighs? More importantly, can you give him a home? Adopt this jumbo-sized package of fluff & love, and help this sad-eyed guy find happiness!”
Lucy Curtis seems to be struggling to hold the cat in the photo. BeeJay weighs 26 lb, and though the shelter remarked that he’s “genuinely big-boned,” he’ll also possibly need to lose a few pounds to maintain good health.
“He’s a ‘very’ large cat, and also overweight,” shelter social media coordinator Dan Solomon told HuffPost in a Twitter statement.
Everyone on the internet is so obsessed with this massive cat that they’ve managed to crash the adoption center’s website.
Morris Animal Refuge commented:
“Mr. B. apologizes for crashing our website. We have our team working to get it back up as we speak. Unfortunately, they’re all cats, so it may take a little while.”
But for anyone who’d wish to adopt Mr. B, more information about him and the rest of the adoption center’s animals is still available on the Petfinder website.
And if BeeJay’s copious fans and admirers on the internet are any indications, he’ll have no struggle finding a home.
Morris Animal Refuge wrote on Facebook:
“We are overwhelmed by the number of wonderful people ready to give Mr. B his fur-ever home. We are excited to find him a home soon, but he’s not quite ready to go home yet.”
“He still needs a more thorough check-up by our vet. We will announce as soon as he’s ready to go! Can’t wait to add a furry friend to your life? Adopt one of our other wonderful kitties that are patiently waiting for you to come to scoop them up!”
Many pet lovers have been left swooning at the prospect of snuggling up with Beejay, with some declaring their eternal love for this towering tabby.
One person said:
“He is one of the most beautiful boys I’ve ever seen. My heart melted! I want to cuddle up with him and give him all my love!”
“Is this gorgeous gentleman still available? I would love to give his royal furriness a home. Obviously, you’re inundated…but I’m still gonna call you tomorrow because of LAWD. What a prince!!!”
