Pets of UBC Psych: Brutus

Going by “Boo Boo” or “Minew”, Brutus is a Domestic Short Haired tuxedo cat belonging to staff member, Deborah Johnson.

This 11-year-old cat enjoys spending time on human laps and in front of fireplaces. To indicate that he wants his humans to turn on the gas fireplace, he often sits and stares in front of it. Then, he proceeds to spend hours lounging in front of the warmth.

When Brutus switched homes from Deborah’s daughter’s to theirs, he was originally frightened by Deborah’s husband. Flash forward, Brutus now won’t leave him alone!
