Friday, October 26, will always be remembered as the day the internet fell in love with Doughnut, the 28-pound cat who the Jacksonville Humane Society lightly ribbed on social media for his weight. Though Doughnut was immediately taken in as an iconic figure just the way he was, the Humane Society was also hoping to find a new owner for the feline...preferably one who would keep him on a strict diet.


Doughtnut made his Twitter debut in style!


I mean, just look at this ball of fluff!

It's no secret the internet has a thing for cats. And Doughnut is a LOT of cat.





And Doughnut is far from the only big cat roaming around...


How could you not love such a fabulous kitty?

Doughnut's size worked to his advantage. The Humane Society posted about him on Facebook and, before long, he had a new owner.


Congratulations, Doughnut! Now comes the hard part: getting fit. We hope to see more pictures soon!

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, "...an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."

Depression displays in certain patterns, such as mood changes, physical difficulties, and social isolation. However, depression manifests differently in different people and feels different to different people.

Reddit users divulged what depression felt like to them when Redditor iodineseaspray asked:

Some of this is sure to sound familiar.
