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.

"Barsik is extremely obese and needs a home that can help him get to an ideal weight. He is too big for our housing so is resting in the office. Come by Manhattan ACC at 110th/2nd. #boroughbred."

Many hope he will find his forever home soon:




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.

I mean, it's the end. Life will be over. That kind of sucks.

Yet there are people who find tranquility in it.

Dating and the search for love and companionship... What a nightmare.

This journey plays out nothing like in the movies.

Every Prince or Princess (or everything in BTW) seems to have a touch of the psycho.

The things people say during what should be simple dinner conversation can leave a dining partner aghast.

Like... do you hear you?
