Bruce Campbell the cat

This is Bruce.

Bruce Campbell the cat is made of win
This little guy is being fostered in FL but needs a home of his own, especially one where he has other kitties to romp with.

He’s in Florida and he needs a new home.  There are more details about him here.  There is one potential adopter located here in MA, but that would require a creative and rather long transport.

If you’re interested in adopting Bruce, the foster Mom, Colleen, can be reached through the link above.

Thanks!
