Barsik is a biiiiiiiig kitty. He is 41 pounds of fur, fluff, cat attitude, and love.

He was recently brought to Manhattan Animal Care Center (where he was too big for the cages) and put up for adoption.


This is Barsik:

"We just received a 41 pound cat! He may even make it to the Guinness Book of World Records," the Animal Care Center wrote on Facebook.


As cute as he is, 41 pounds is not the ideal weight for a kitty.

For now, Barsik has been taken in by a foster family who is helping him on the road to losing weight:

He is apparently also making quite a fuss about places to step.

But still, thankfully he is on the road to recovery so that when he finds a forever home, he will be a-ok:





Barsik is already making new friends:



And gotten some nicknames:



There are dozens of shelters around Manhattan that house animals in need of their own forever homes.

If Barsik has piqued your interest, perhaps take a look into some of those.

Every once in awhile, somebody comes along, enters your life, and catapults themselves to that awful, unique position at the top of your list of the worst people you have ever met.

Sometimes, the person's blindingly terrible behavior and overall essence is actually impressive. We ask ourselves, "how could a person like this actually exist on purpose?"
