‘The BIG Lebowski’: 30-pound cat named after ‘The Dude’ abides at shelter as he awaits forever home

A 30-pound chonk of a cat at DuPage County Animal Services in Wheaton, Illinois, has been bestowed with a legendary title — “Lebowski—the BIG Lebowski.”

“Also answers to, the Dude, His dudeness, duder, or el dudorino,” a post on the DuPage County Animal Services Facebook page says.

“Oh lawd he comin’ up for adoption,” said DCAS. “Who likes thicc boys??”

The 3-year-old orange-and-white tabby ended up at animal services looking for a new home after his previous owners moved and left him behind.

According to the Facebook post, Lebowski takes after his namesake in temperament as well, being described as, “Large, laid back, and not one to make a fuss about, well anything.”

As if that weren’t enough to make this absolute unit completely irresistible, the team at DCAS has also assured potential cat parents that Lewboski can tie any room together (and probably better than any rug ever could).

“He's waiting for you to adopt him. Until then, The Dude abides.”

DCAS said that, as of Wednesday morning, Lebowski has an adopter lined up to bring him home, but they do have another oversized chonk named PeeWee who has been looking for her forever home since July.

 "PeeWee may not be as chonky as The Dude but there's still plenty of her to love!" the DCAS staff wrote in a post.
