Yes, we are absolutely keeping Brutus! He’s got such a great personality! Loudest purrer I’ve ever heard and he’s so excited to eat every time (despite getting 4 meals a day) that he nearly knocks the scoop out of our hands. He is most certainly vocal, even showing Beans up as she’s quite talkative as well. Ironically, he’s also super clumsy, so he’s probably braver than what he should be since he’s acrobatic-ly challenged. We are still very much transitioning him into the family with Beans (whom we adopted from PAWS last year), and we’ve definitely encountered challenges – but, we are committed to making it work. I’ve attached photos!
