26lb Chonky Cat “Mr. B” Finally Found His Forever Home After Getting Adopted

Being cute doesn’t always equate to being small. Sometimes, it’s about being chonky too, and BeeJay, aka Mr. B, is here to prove that. It was back in August 2019 when the Morris Animal Refuge first introduced the 26-pound furball to the online world. The Philadelphia-based animal shelter sought the help of the online community in finding the gentle giant a new loving home.

While it’s easy to assume that Mr. B would have a hard time finding a home because of his incredible heft, things turned out quite differently. In fact, the shelter’s website even crashed due to the influx of inquiries and applications – approximately 3,000. The tweet introducing Mr. B undoubtedly generated quite a buzz as well, gathering over 14K retweets and nearly 50K likes. Apparently, it was love at first sight for a lot of people! More importantly, it’s good to see Mr. B receiving an outpouring of love despite his unusual size.
