An “Extra” Cat For An “Extra” Owner

  • These two were meant to be.This cat is extra, his owner is extra, and First of all, Bruno weighs 25 pounds. He stands on his back legs like a human. And he is the most extra cat that you will meet. Want to know more about this cat? He was at an animal shelter in Illinois and they wanted to try to find him an adoptive family. So they went to social media, like anyone does these days, and posted a picture of this amazing-ly extra feline. According to the the post, Bruno is one high-maintenance cat that needs very specific care and a list of requests. No, I’m not kidding. This lists includes things like being pet during mealtime, except for his belly, don’t touch that. Also, he doesn’t want his water dish to be close to his food dish. Ever. Along with those specifications comes one big one. There is only one toy for Bruno, that he wants to play with, and that is a feather wand. Bruno might be needy but he is also awesomely weird, has a cool party hat trick, and is very photogenic due to his standing like a person (and on his hind legs,) that the organization was overwhelmed with how many people wanted to adopt Bruno. The shelter wanted to be picky and find the most extra owner for this extra cat. “The more EXTRA, the better,” the shelter prompted of the applicants. And they found the right person. Lauren Paris, a Chicago-based singer and actress not only sent recommendation letters and a video tour or her home, she also wrote and performed an original song about the only and only, Bruno. Talk about extra. The shelter said, “Lauren has always expressed the seriousness of her application. They really [hit] it off over the weekend as well/ She will be the absolute best FOREVER home for Bruno!” He settled right in and made himself comfortable on her desk, and Paris. Well she is just smitten. She’s set Bruno up on [email protected], because as an extra cat, he has to be on Instagram. These two are extra together and we cannot wait to see more of them in the future.

This cat is extra and his owner is extra, too. And by extra, I mean the most recent slang, outrageous. 

First of all, Bruno (the cat) weighs 25 pounds. He stands on his back legs like a human. And he is the most extra cat that you will meet.

Bruno settled right in and made himself comfortable on her desk, and Paris, well, she is just smitten. She’s set Bruno up on Instagram @theebrunobartlett, because as an extra cat, he had to have his own Instagram.

These two are extra together and we cannot wait to see more of them in the future.
