BeeJay or Mr. B is a 26-pound cat that took the internet by storm after the Morris Animal Shelter shared his photo and asked for help finding somebody to adopt him.

Since then, they said they have had a “tremendous outpouring of support of Mr. B,” and have narrowed the search down to a handful of possible adopters.
