GLOUCESTER TOWNSHIP – After looking so sad and depressed that he went viral, a South Jersey cat has found a new home in time for the holidays.
“Fishtopher” is a 5-year-old male domestic shorthair and Bengal mix, according to the Homeward Bound Pet Adoption Center in Blackwood.
A profile listed by the shelter on Petfinder, along with a heartbreaking photo, described the stray as “cute, easy-going, laid-back” and affectionate.
“Fishtopher is a big cheeky boy,” he continued, “who loves to snuggle up in arms, it seems to make him feel safe.”
Since a Twitter user shared the post on November 24, it has been shared more than 21,000 times and received almost 170,000 likes.
The cat was adopted within two days.
