Giant 26-pound cat up for adoption at Philadelphia shelter

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (CBS17.com) — Here’s something you don’t see every day. A cat weighing approximately 26-pounds is looking for a home — preferably one with enough room to house the hunk of love.

“BeeJay” or “Mister B” is a domestic short-hair tabby cat. The cat’s unusual size makes him roughly three times as big as a “normal-sized” house cat.

The Morris Animal Refuge in Philadelphia posted a photo on Thursday announcing he’s looking for a home and this big boy has since gone viral.

The refuge Friday posted that it has been overwhelmed by the number of people wanting to adopt Mr. B. However, he still needs a more thorough check-up from the veterinarian and he’s not ready to go to his forever home quite yet.
