And as it turns out Mister B weighs an astounding 26 pounds!

Morris Animal Refuge received such a high amount of support that they just had to write a new message saying,
“Sweet chunky Mr. B’s amazed by the huge outpawing of interest in him – over 3000 applications! He has a foster (maybe forever) home now – but so many other great adoptable cats need you.”
