Brutus who was often seen wandering around the supermarket had been ill around Christmas time, well-wishers sent cards and a bouquet of flowers to owner Claire Owens.
In a heart-wrenching message posted on his Facebook page today his owner said:
Dreading this post, but it’s with an extremely heavy heart that I have to tell you all that we had to have our gorgeous boy Brutus put to sleep around midday today.
He went peacefully on a nice snuggly blanket in our kitchen. I cuddled him, gave him head scratchies and talked to him so he knew he was loved right up until the very end.
I’m in tears writing this and I know a lot of you will be while reading this.
He will be so so missed and has left a Brutus shaped hole in all our hearts. Sleep well gorgeous boy. Morrisons just won’t be the same without you.
