Molico knows the struggle of quarantine weight gain.

The 14-year-old cat reportedly weighs 24 pounds, which is more than double her target weight, KHON reported. Located at the Hawai'i Cat Cafe in Honolulu, Molico is looking to be adopted by an active owner who will help her reach her weight loss goal.

"She should weight about 10lbs, even her little tail is part fat," Cindy Washburn, owner of the cafe, told the outlet. "She's looking for a family who's willing to go on a weight loss journey with her and give her lots of love."

According to Washburn, the blood work the cat cafe had conducted on Molico for any medical conditions came back negative, so they believe her previous owner simply overfed her. The cat now needs an owner who can commit to helping her slowly shed the extra weight.

"Someone who's willing to work with a veterinarian and monitor her food intake and maybe try out some different toys, maybe she'll chase a laser or two," Washburn said of the cat's ideal match.

The cafe owner also noted that Molico would be great for anyone who is also looking to amp up their fitness routine.

"She's a really good cat if you need someone to do squats with, and you can lose weight together!" she said.

However, Molico would make a great pet for any family, Washburn added.

"She has a lot of personality even though she's huge! She loves to be pet, she'll start drooling when you're scratching her chin she doesn't mind other cats at all," she assured any potential owners.

The Hawai'i Cat Cafe is partnered with the Hawaiian Humane Society. Their mission is to help "adopt as many kitties as possible into loving forever homes."
