    Miss Bruce came to us because we offered to babysit her and mittens. The lady told us wrong about their genders, saying that miss Bruce was male. thus why we now call this kitty miss Bruce, come to find out Bruce is female.
    Bruce has one of the friendliest dispositions of the cats in our house. I have even seen her stand up against other cats teasing one of our other females.
