Famous local cat has died

By Bethany Whittingham 


The renowned Morrisons tabby cat, Brutus, died with his owners in Saltney on January 16 after suffering from Polycystic Kidney Disease. 

His heartbroken owners, Claire and Adam Owens, decided that the eight-year-old cat would be put to sleep after Christmas following a relapse from kidney failure. 

Brutus was regularly seen sat by the entrance greeting customers and falling asleep in trolley seats. 

Several Chester shoppers have been sending in their farewell wishes to the famous supermarket cat on Twitter.
