Famously Thicc, High-Maintenance Cat Finds New Human As Extra As He Is


Cat Behavior

Bruno is off the market, guys.

The multi-toed, 25 -pound cat with a kooky habit of standing on his hind legs, went viral last week thanks to Wright-Way Rescue, an Illinois animal shelter that wrote a funny plea for his adoption and posted it on Facebook.

According to the organization’s post, Bruno is quite the high-maintenance feline and needs the perfect human servant to abide to his very specific — and long — listing of demands in order to live his very best kitty life.

These requests include that he be pet during mealtimes , not have his potbelly touched, and that his water never be placed anywhere near his food. There is also only one type of toy Bruno discovers acceptable to play with — a plumage wand.

Hello. I see you checking out my feathering wand.

And because Bruno is A .) adorably weird, B .) has a cool party trick and C .) is majorly photogenic, tons of people applied to be his personal butler, er, owner.

So, the shelter had to be picky.

“Our thicc boi Bruno is now reviewing applications for the* PERFECT* home, ” it wrote on Facebook.

“The more EXTRA, the better, ” the shelter said of applicants.

And boy, did they find the right person for this fur penguin.

Lauren Paris, a Chicago-based singer and actress , not only sent Wright-Way Rescue letters of recommendations and a video tour of her home, but she also wrote and performed an original anthem about Bruno.

That’s what we’d like to call extra af.

“Lauren has always expressed the seriousness of her application, ” the shelter said in a comment on Instagram .. “They actually[ hitting] it off over the weekend as well/ She will be the absolute best FOREVER home for Bruno! ”

In a video posted to Facebook on Monday, the shelter also seemed super excited to relay the good news to Paris — though Bruno appeared to more interested in purring indifferently on top of a desk while tucking his little paws under his large body.

Paris, however, seems psyched. She’s already set up @theebrunobartlett, an Instagram account for the quirky cat.

Its first post depicts Paris bonding with her big boy.

We’re looking forward to following these two as they enter into a life of mass extra-ness.
