Animal Care Centers of NYC has put up for adoption a black and white feline named Barsik who’s a bit on the heavy side. Barsik, a 5-year-old domestic short-hair, came to the Manhattan shelter Saturday, dropped off by owners leaving town. He’s taken up living quarters in a staff office because he’s too big to hold in one of the shelter’s cages. Monday, Barsik and his housemate were moved to a foster home run by a volunteer from Anjellicle Cats Rescue in Manhattan. Barsik tips the scale at 41 pounds.

An Australian pizza chef broke a Guinness World Record by putting together a pie with 154 varieties of cheese on top. Johnny di Francesco, chef at 400 Gradi in Melbourne, formerly held the Guinness World Record record for the greatest variety of cheese on a pizza when he created a 99-cheese pizza, but he lost the record when someone else upped the cheese content to 111 varieties. Johnny decided to recapture the record with a 154-cheese pizza.
