MORRISTOWN, PA — The Morris Animal Refuge in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania has a very special, very large resident in need of a new forever home. Beejay, also known as Big Boi "Mr. B" is larger than the average house cat - much larger in fact, weighing in at just over 26 pounds..

Beejay is a 2-year-old and appears to be a mixture of domestic shorthair, with perhaps some Maine Coon cat mixed in. Overall he is healthy, and he is a big love, literally!

Those interested in learning more about Big Boi should contact the Morris Animal Refuge via email at, by phone at (215) 735-9570 or on their Facebook page.

Founded in 1874, the Morris Animal Refuge is America’s First Animal Shelter. They are committed to adoption, education and high-quality care. As an open-admission shelter, they never turn an animal away. The Refuge continues to operate today in Elizabeth Morris' original house in Center City Philadelphia at 1242 Lombard Street.
