A cat who was sent back to a Connecticut animal shelter in the United States for being “too clingy” has finally found a new family after fierce competition between suitors.
Last January, Bruno, barely two years old, was brought back to the Montville Animal Shelter against all odds by his adopters – a mother and her daughter – just under a week after his adoption. According to them, Bruno was “too clingy”, the shelter reported.
Montville Animal Shelter New Jersey
Last January, against all odds, Bruno, barely two years old, was driven back to the animal shelter in Montville, Connecticut, by his adopters – a mother and daughter – just under a week after his adoption. According to them, Bruno was “too clingy”, the shelter reported.
Apparently, the mother didn’t like the fact that Bruno followed her everywhere and stood on her lap the whole time. She also felt that he was too “playful” and disturbed her daughter’s sleep by wanting to sleep with her.
When she saw Bruno walking through the doors of the shelter again, Lindsay Persico, a staff member, didn’t hesitate to react and share the news on social networks. Result: The post was shared almost 1500 times in a few hours, with more than 500 comments.
The shelter then received many calls and according to the young woman, almost 50 adoption applications were made.
It didn’t take long for Bruno to find a new home as two days later the young tomcat was able to leave the shelter in the arms of his new adopters.
The Montville Animal Shelter claimed that cat adoptions increased dramatically as a result of this story.
