“FISHTOPHER LEFT THE BUILDING!” Homeward Bound Pet Adoption Center in Blackwood, New Jersey, celebrated Saturday on Facebook.

Fishtopher, a chunky tabby cat rescued as a stray and estimated to be 5 years old, became popular this week when his adoption listing went viral.

He was “very unhappy and depressed” yet craved affection, according to the animal sanctuary. Fishtopher was pictured hunched and pathetic.

Fishtopher became a social media star after Molly Clarke shared screenshots of the listing.

His online fame yielded results. Hundreds wanted to adopt Fishtopher.
