The New York City Animal Care Centers has recently posted a picture of a new cat who's up for adoption. His name is Barsik and he weighs in at around 41 lbs. or around 18 kgs.
World-record contender or not, Barsik is certainly a big, big boy. Social media posts from the ACC noted that the 5-year-old feline “is too big for our housing” and had to be kept in his own makeshift enclosure. He’s the largest cat to be brought to the organization in its 20-year existence, according to the New York Daily News.
