Doughnut The 28-Pound Cat Has Found His New Forever Home—And We Couldn't Be Happier For Him 😻

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!

But all anyone who's experienced a terrifying ordeal can do to find peace is to count their blessings and be grateful they are survivors.

Perhaps the best thing about our friends is that we can always rely on them.

To help us out, to give us words of comfort and wisdom when we need them, or to just be a willing pair of ears.

Even so, our friends still have a way of surprising us, as well as disappointing us from time to time.

Sometimes they'll do things that just make us groan and roll our eyes but are easily forgiven over time.

Other times, however, they might do or say something which can only be described as "f*cked up."

Potentially putting an effective end to your friendship.

When you gotta go, you go.

That should be a mantra for getting rid of the toxic people in our lives.

Not every relationship is meant to last forever.

Some people don't know how to be friends.

They are awfully good at pretending though.

Be vigilant of the signs and red flags.

Toxic people are crafty.

And once you're free, never look back.
