The Wright Way Rescue animal shelter in Cook County, Illinois, has a Russian Blue cat named Bruno up for adoption.

According to their Facebook post, Bruno declares himself as being "Too cool to be homeless."

We would have to agree.


The animal shelter is seeking an owner to adopt the 7-year-old cat.

What makes Bruno special are his unique traits.

He has extra digits—which makes him a polydactyl. Also, at 25 pounds, he weighs more than the typical Russian Blue cat by almost 15 extra pounds.

Based on photos of the precious kitty, there's a whole lot of him to love.

The Facebook post reads:

"There's a lot of me to love! I am perfectly healthy other than being overweight. I am on a diet, though."
"I am walking, playing, and doing tricks like this to lose some weight."

He's a very affectionate cat according to his description.

"I like when you scratch the sides of my face and neck."
"I like to be pet on the top of my head and spine only."

However, patting his belly is off limits.

"I know my tummy is so tempting to touch, but I would prefer if you didn't. I may swat my hand and pretend to bite if you do."

Cat lovers instantly fell in love with the pictures of Bruno standing on his hind legs and showing off his protruding belly.

According to the Facebook post, Bruno standing on his hind legs is a quirky trait he does to communicate that he's ready to eat.


No one knows how he learned the trick.


"No, my foster parents did not teach me this. They are not sure how I learned."

Bruno also likes to be pet while feasting.

He'll still eat if you don't pet him. But Bruno will keep meowing and stare you down until you give in and provide kitty canoodling.



Bruno is also very specific about drinking his water.

He drinks a lot and prefers to keep hydrated by lapping up water from bowls placed in various parts of the house. Put not from a bowl right next to his food.

"I only drink the water that was put in a completely different room. If you have a larger house, perhaps put multiple bowls of water around for me and be sure to give me fresh water at least once day?"
"Yes, I know I am EXTRA."


The shelter's post received over 22 thousand likes and is currently reviewing many applications.

According to ABC 7, applications came in from as far as Australia, Wales and Canada.





May Bruno find a happy forever home.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
