PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

One fat cat is now a happy camper. 

Big Jack has found his forever family!

We first told you about this 30-pound cat on Wednesday. He even made an appearance on Good Morning Arizona.

All the attention has paid off!

Maricopa County Animal Care and Control says he was adopted by a loving family on Thursday.

But there are still plenty of animals who need good homes.
