The most pretentious cat on earth has met his perfect match – and she’s adopting him.
Bruno, a 25 pound feline, came to Wright-Way Rescue looking for a home… but not just any home. This cat came with conditions. Whoever adopted him would have to pet him during meals while keeping his water bowl at a distance, allow him to sleep at the foot of their bed, and play with him with no other toy than… wait for it… a feather wand.
As needy as this cat is, his biggest need was a loving home. That’s where the competition got fierce. As soon as Wright-Way Rescue posted on social media that Bruno needed a home, the applications started flooding in.
Although many applicants attempted to impress the judges… er… shelter staff, none of them really had a chance after young actress Lauren Paris sent in her bid. Paris’s entry included letters of recommendation, a letter of intent, a virtual tour of where Bruno would live, and the cherry on top of the catnip cake: an original song, dedicated to the high-maintenance fur ball. She even promised not to rub his tummy, as he “doesn’t like that.”

Paris later told Buzzfeed, “When I saw a photo of Bruno that had been shared on Facebook I just… freaked. It was this wild combination of an excited laugh/cry. And I felt this insane drive — I knew I would do whatever it took to be his forever home.”
Much to the enthusiasm of Lauren, the Wright-Way Rescue selected her to be the purr-fect mom for Bruno.
The shelter told Buzzfeed, “She is adored by all of us at Wright-Way Rescue, and ultimately it was her thoughtful and genuine nature that made her a clear choice.”
