GLOUCESTER TOWNSHIP — After looking so sad and depressed that he went viral, a South Jersey cat has landed 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 on Petfinder by the animal shelter along with a heart-wrenching photo described the stray as “sweet, easy-going, laid-back” and affectionate.
“Fishtopher is a big cheeky boy," it continued, who "loves cuddling up in arms, it seems to make him feel secure."
Since a Twitter user shared the listing on Nov. 24 — it has been shared more than 21,000 times and received almost 170,000 likes.
The cat was adopted within two days.
