‘Big Boned’ 26-Pound Cat Up for Adoption at Philly Shelter

Clear the Shelters

Help WETM-TV ‘Clear the Shelters!’ We hope you come out on Saturday, August 25 -Aug 29th, 2020, and adopt a furry friend!

Adoption fees are waived at participating shelters, during this time only, pending application approval. Other fees may still apply.

Here’s are participating adoption shelters in the Twin Tiers:

The Animal Care Sanctuary is a no-kill sanctuary with locations in East Smithfield and Wellsboro, Pennsylvania. Our mission is to provide a safe and caring refuge for companion animals, inspire change through education, provide adoption services, and support spay/neuter initiatives.

Questions about adoption? Contact the shelter:

Emily Shaffer, Adoption Coordinator
P: (570) 596-2200 x101
E: eshaffer@animalcaresanctuary.org

To be sure the process is smooth, please bring all veterinary records the day of Clear the Shelters, as most veterinarian offices are not open on weekends. Without veterinary records of current furry family members, we cannot complete a same-day adoption. Get ahead of the game and fill out an application a few days prior to arriving and we will work to get you preapproved.

Chonk. Jumbo-sized. Genuinely big boned. These are only a few of the terms that were used to describe a humongous cat that’s up for adoption at a Philadelphia animal shelter.

The Morris Animal Refuge tweeted photos of BeeJay, a 2-year-old brown and white tabby cat weighing in at a whopping 26 pounds. Yes, you read that right. Twenty-six.

“OMG, big boi Mr. B is a CHONK,” the shelter tweeted Thursday morning. “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.”

Three things were immediately apparent from the tweet: One, the Morris Animal Refuge loves the word “chonk.” Two, BeeJay is HUGE, looking more like a tiger or a lynx than your average house cat. Three, BeeJay really knows how to strike a pose, giving off runway-worthy looks in his two Twitter photos that Derek Zoolander would envy.

The pictures of the “jumbo-sized package of fluff and love” quickly went viral with Twitter users expressing their amazement as only Twitter users know how.

Want to adopt BeeJay? Reach out to the Morris Animal Refuge and give him a new home. That is, of course, if he can fit through your door.
