(CNN) - Chubbs the cat has found a forever home.

Someone in California found the stray 10-year-old Himalayan mix walking down a busy street without an ID tag or microchip.

The 29-pound feline became an internet sensation after the Pasadena Humane Society posted a picture in an effort to find his owner.

The Humane Society announced they had not been able to find Chubbs' owner, so he was put up for adoption.

They said Chubbs' new family needed to be willing to work with a veterinarian to put him on a healthy eating plan.

He was adopted Wednesday by Ruben and Yvette Viola of Monrovia, CA, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Chubb's new owners had lost their previous pet, a 14-year-old cat, to cancer three months ago.

As adorable as Chubbs is, obese cats are more likely to suffer from health issues like heart disease, diabetes and thyroid issues.
