How This Quirky, 25-Pound Cat Became Internet Famous And Found His “Furrever” Home
Bruno isn’t just a regular kitty. He’s a 25-pound cat beast, a ball of love who enjoys standing on his hind legs and receiving pets while he eats. Although Bruno is cute and quirky as can be, he was still given up for adoption. However, it didn’t take too long for Bruno’s uniqueness to take the Internet by storm, which is how he found his new mom.
Born A Star
Back in April, Bruno was surrendered to Wright Way Rescue, an animal shelter in Morton, Illinois. Giving up Bruno wasn’t easy for his owners.
“Bruno was surrendered to Wright Way from his previous owner in Southern Illinois,” said Jacoby Andrick, Director of Marketing and Communications for Wright Way Rescue. “They had him since he was a kitten, but sadly he didn’t mesh very well with the kids in the home. It was a very hard decision for them since he is such a special cat.”
Down With The Thickness
After a few posts from Wright Way Rescue’s Facebook page, the Internet went wild over the sensation that is Bruno.
And who wouldn’t? At times, Bruno the 25-pound cat stands on his hind legs for more than 20 minutes. He’s even known to sneak into other cats’ cages at the shelter, looking for food. After going viral, Bruno caught the attention of one lucky lady.
Mom Doing The Most
Lauren Paris, a singer and actress from Chicago, was chosen by Bruno (and Wright Way Rescue) to be his new mom. Needless to say, Paris is thrilled. “[Lauren] is loved by everyone at Wright Way Rescue and we know she will make an amazing mom to Bruno,” Andrick said.
Bruno’s time as an Internet star isn’t over post-adoption, though. His new parents set him up with an Instagram account, @theebrunobartlett, and he already boasts more than 48,000 followers. Check out this video of Bruno’s new mom singing an original song about him before the adoption.
Yep, Bruno the 25-pound cat definitely found a mom that’s just as extra as him, if not more!
