Brutus the Cat was a common sight at the Flintshire Supermarket where he would walk daily to check the meat and fish section. All the customers there had taken a great liking to this friendly cat and were always happy to see him.
Brutus had become such a regular visitor of the Morrisons that everyone there, both the customers and the staff looked forward to his visit. So much so that the cat had a personal facebook page and had almost 12,000 followers. Therefore when this friendly feline died the people decided to honour his memory.
So funds were raised and thousands of dollars were donated by the shopkeepers. It was decided to erect a bronze statue of Brutus which would be a fitting tribute to the friendly. “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 manager of the store also thought that it was the perfect way to remember Brutus.“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.”
