25-pound Russian blue cat with extra toes looking for ‘fur-ever’ home


Bruno is an unusually large Russian blue cat who is highly motivated by food and is looking for the perfect home.

Though Russian blue cats usually weigh up to 10 pounds, Bruno is an over-achiever weighing in at a solid 25 pounds. He is also a polydactyl cat, meaning he was born with more toes than usual. 

The flabby, furry feline arrived at the Wright-Wray Rescue Shelter in April. 

One of his tricks is that he can stand up on his hind legs. 

The animal shelter manager says Bruno is happy-go-lucky, especially when food is involved. 

“When I first met him, he was a happy, goofy guy,” Jason Abbas said. “Obviously, he is very food-motivated, so he learns quickly where his food is up on the counter.”

The shelter says it has received adoption applications from all over the country and from as far away as Australia, Wales, and Canada.
