Fat cat seeking fur-ever home in Chicago suburbs

MORTON GROVE, Ill. — A fat cat in the Chicago suburbs is getting a lot of attention after a shelter posted an online adoption ad.

Bruno came to Wright-Way Rescue in Morton Grove in April and has been stealing hearts ever since, according to the shelter at 5915 N. Lincoln Ave.

The 7-year-old polydactyl cat tips the scale at 25 pounds. He likes to walk on his hind legs and is described as "a chatty kitty" who meows often and likes to be pet while he eats.

Bruno has a rather refined lifestyle that comes with a list of likes and dislikes that must be observed, the shelter said.

He's happy to play, but only with his feather wand toy.

He's a big boy who drinks lots of water, but never from a bowl in the kitchen where his food is, only from a dish in a separate room.

Aside from the quirks, the shelter said Bruno is "a pretty laid-back, lazy cat" who just wants to be around his owners.

Sound like a good fit?
