Thousands apply to adopt hefty cat in Pennsylvania


There have been more than 3,000 applicants to adopt Mr. B, a 26-pound cat at the Morris Animal Refuge in Philadelphia.

“Our small, but mighty, staff has been working tirelessly to place Mr. B in the best situation possible,” he shelter said in a Facebook post.

The shelter said Mr. B has some underlying health and behavioral issues following a vet exam and that he will need “exceptional care and attention.”

“We want to thank everyone again for the enthusiasm for Mr. B. While we wish we were able to respond to everyone individually, we are a very small staff and don’t have the bandwidth to do so....We will keep everyone updated throughout his journey on our social media accounts,” the Facebook statement concluded.
