“Bruno is a 7-year-old Maine coon, that enjoys scratches, cuddles, and naps. He is a love bug and a momma’s boy for sure. He was raised with another cat, Gus who passed in 2019. He was very lonely without Gus, his bro. So on Halloween, he got a new little sister, Buffy. She is a long-haired Russian Blue, who loves to play, play some more, and nap on daddy’s lap.

Bruno is @bros_before_treats and Buffy is @iamlilbuffy!”
