August 20, 2018

(WOMC) - This is a whole different kind of fat cat. If you know anyone looking for a 25-pound cat that can stand on its back legs, we got you covered.

A quirky 7-year-old, 25-pound cat in the Chicago suburbs who sits up on his hind legs is getting a lot of attention after a shelter posted an online adoption ad.

The shelter says Bruno is “too cool to be homeless.” He talks a lot and loves to be petted when he eats—but don’t pet his belly. He is also on a diet. 

When I first met him, he’s a happy, goofy guy,” Wright-Way manager Jason Abbas told WLS-TV. “Obviously he’s very food motivated, so of course he learned quickly where his food is up on the counter.”

The shelter has heard from people all over the U.S., Canada, and Australia who say they want to adopt Bruno, the station reported.
