Local supermarket cat honored with bronze statue (Gallery)
Brutus the cat loved to visit his favorite local supermarket, Morrison's, everyday in his hometown Flintshire, Wales.
Brutus would charm staff and customers, check out the fresh arrivals in the fish and meat section, and take naps in cozy corners.
Brutus actually lived only 200 meters away with his family, and would return each night to them... but during the day, Brutus could be found at Morrison's.
The cat became quite the local celebrity... so sadly, when he passed away early this year, the community decided to donate thousands of dollars in his honor... by creating this epic 18 inch bronze statue.
“We thought a memorial to honor Brutus is only fitting so that shoppers can still say hello to him,” said Brutus’ owner Clare. “Brutus is being placed back in his rightful place and he looks amazing.”
The store’s manager, Christine Joy, agreed that the statue was the perfect way to remember Brutus, who had become part of the family at Morrisons.
“Everyone loved our unofficial little store greeter and we couldn’t be happier to be unveiling a statue which will celebrate his life and keep his memory alive.”
Brutus will now live on in everybody's hearts, still bringing a smile to many faces at Morrison's supermarket.
