Philadelphia, Pa. (WCYB) - The famous web sensation described as "a chonk of a chonk" now has a new home.

The Morris Animal Refuge said on Twitter that Beejay the 26 pound cat has received an "outpawning" of interest and now has a foster home. The refuge says the foster family could keep him permanently.

Previously, Morris Animal Refuge tweeted some photos of "Mr. B" asking for someone to give him a new home. The refuge did give a special note about the cat's size, saying "OMG, big boi Mr. B is a CHONK. He’s a chonk of a chonk. He redefines the term."

At one point, Morris Animal Refuge says their website crashed under the heavy web traffic.

Mr. B may have found a home, but the refuge says there are a lot of other great cats that still need a home. You can find a list of their adoptable cats here.
