This is Bruno, who is quite possibly the most amazing (and high-maintenance) cat you'll ever see.

The seven-year-old feline is currently up for adoption through the Illinois-based Wright-Way Rescue centre, and his presence there has caused quite a reaction from people due to his large form and even larger personality.

Wright-Way Rescue listed the 25-pound cat and people were instantly enamoured with him, fighting to be the lucky ones to adopt him and give him a loving home.

People don't seem to mind that Bruno sounds like an exceptionally extra cat, who, according to the rescue centre's Facebook post, would require you to pet him while he eats and even place multiple bowls of water in separate rooms.

The strangely-shaped cat is said to be "perfect healthy", but just a little overweight - he is also polydactyly, which means he has adorable tiny kitty thumbs.

The animal rescue states that he is on a diet and being tasked with losing weight. Sounds pretty normal right?

Well, almost; there are a few quirks you need to know about first.

According to the rescue, Bruno loves to play, but only with one specific feather toy. You must also only pet him on the face, neck or spine, but his tummy is absolutely off limits.

Perhaps his strangest quirk is that you have to pet him while he eats, and if you stop, he will stop eating and look at you for a time.

Despite all of these oddities, Bruno is just a big cat looking for a loving home and pretty much everyone wants to be the person to give him one.

The rescue have said that 'Our thicc boi Bruno' is reviewing the applications now for the perfect home.

We love you already, Bruno and wish you luck in finding the perfect home for you.

We're not sure how Bruno hasn't found his forever home yet! He's the COOLEST cat!

Hi, my name is Bruno! I am a 7 year-old polydactyl cat who is 25 pounds.

There's a lot of me to love! I am perfectly healthy other than being overweight. I am on a diet, though. I am walking, playing, and doing tricks like this to lose some weight.

When I am in a normal home, most of my day is spent laying around, but never far from my family. I usually prefer to lay on the floor or right next to you, but occasionally I like to be a lap-cat. I also really like playing with my feather wand toy. Not so much my other toys or scratchers, though. I do like to sleep with my foster parents, but at the end of the bed so you still have room.

I like when you scratch the sides of my face and neck. I like to be pet on the top of my head and spine only. I know my tummy is so tempting to touch, but I would prefer if you didn't. I may swat my hand and pretend to bite if you do.

I like to talk to you....a LOT. Be prepared for a chatty kitty! I have a couple quirky traits too....For one, I like to stand on my hind legs! This usually happens when I want food. No, my foster parents did not teach me this. They are not sure how I learned.

Second, I love to be pet while I eat. It took my foster mom a little time to realize what I was meowing about, since she had just put food in my bowl. Soon she found out it's because I want pets while I eats! I will still eat if you don't pet me, but I will meow more and stare at you for a while...I also drink a lot of water. I never drink the water in the kitchen where my food is. I only drink the water that was put in a completely different room. If you have a larger house, perhaps put multiple bowls of water around for me and be sure to give me fresh water at least once day? Yes, I know I am EXTRA.

Overall, I am a pretty laid back, lazy cat who just wants to be in the presence of my owners. I hear I make them laugh and smile every single day, so I hope I can do the same for you!

UPDATE: He has been VERY excited with all of the interest, so he's taking the time to review all of his adoption applications to see which home he'd like best. He is high maintenance after all! If you haven't yet, please fill out an online application so he can review over the next week!
