We know that cats are individuals, and there are some breeds that are naturally larger than others. But for one cat, appropriately named Big Boi Mr. B—AKA “Chonk”—he is naturally REALLY big. The more-to-love feline is described as a domestic shorthair and all-around “cool dude” with “a big heart”:

The original tweet shared from the Morris Animal Refuge in Philadelphia:

Sadly, there have been many cats surrendered to animal shelters who are morbidly obese, but such is not the case with Chonk.

He’s just a really big cat!



It seems that Chonk is around 2 years of age. And reportedly, he’s not only downright adorable, but he’s got a heart as big as he is!

Morris Animal Refuge is requesting donations for Chonk’s care. But most importantly, they’re in search of a furever home for their now-celebrity Big Boi! If you’re interested in giving this cat a home, they’re still accepting applications for the large feline.

In an update from early this morning, it seems that the photo of Chonk has garnered him lots of attention by way of applications pouring in!

Morris Animal Refuge expressed their sincere gratitude for interest in this handsome boy. But they also reminded the public that he’s not ready to go off to his furever home just yet!

From their Facebook page, 8/23/2019:

Morris Animal Refuge UPDATE: 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! Just 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 scoop them up!…/morris-animal-refuge-pa247/
