Symba is six years old, sweet, mellow and available for adoption, according to Humane Rescue Alliance officials. They posted photos of the portly feline on their social media pages on Thursday. The cat will need owners who are dedicated to helping the overweight cat shed some pounds. 

The cat's weight loss regimen has already started. In a tweet posted by the Humane Rescue Alliance, Simba is introduced to an exercise wheel, where he gingerly takes a few steps before taking a break.
