Barsik is a New York City cat that weighs over 41 pounds and he is inviting everyone to join in on his weight loss journey!
Unfortunately, Barsik was surrendered by his owner to Animal Care Centers of NYC last week. His family said that they were moving and weren't able to take him with them, according to an Instagram account that started to document his weight loss progress.
The overweight kitty was moved to Anjellicle Cats rescue group in Manhattan. One of the organizations volunteers decided to foster Barsik and help him shed some pounds!
Barsik isn't available for adoption yet as he's currently working on making himself healthier. You can follow his weightless journey on his Instagram.
