SADNESS AT DEATH OF'MORRISONS CAT'BRUTUS.
BRUTUS the Morrisons' cat has died.
The eight-year-old tabby shot to fame because of his antics at the store in Saltney where he would prowl around for hours delighting animal lovers.
He became as much a part of Morrisons' fixtures and fittings as the trolleys and groceries.
Brutus suffered from polycystic kidney disease and following a relapse over Christmas he was put to sleep yesterday.
His owners Claire and Adam Owens shared the news on his phenomenally successful Facebook page, sparking an outpouring of condolences for the much-loved moggy.
Claire wrote: "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."
