PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — BeeJay — Philadelphia’s internet-famed 26-pound cat — is close to finding a new home. Mr. B’s adoption is down to a “handful of potential adopters” and it should be finalized by early this week, the Morris Animal Refuse says.
In a Facebook post on Saturday night, the animal shelter provided the update on Mr. B’s adoption while showing their gratitude for the support they’ve received.READ MORE: 2 Off-Duty Philadelphia Police Officers Robbed At Gunpoint In Oxford Circle
“We want to thank everyone for the tremendous outpouring of support of Mr. B and the lifesaving work we do here at Morris Animal Refuge,” the shelter wrote. “We have gotten it narrowed down to a handful of potential adopters that we think can give him the perfect home. His adoption should be finalized early this week!”
The Morris Animal Refuge’s social media post announcing that 2-year-old Mr. B was seeking a “fur-ever” home quickly went viral and temporarily crashed the shelter’s website.
