Sharing is caring!

Cay and her husband take their dog, Coconut, on a walk every night, however, they never imagined a special feline friend would join them one particular night. 

Bubba, a curious and friendly stray cat came up to them and decided to make them his chosen family.

From that first meeting, Bubba began tagging along with Cay’s husband and Coconut on their daily walks. His affectionate nature and playful interactions quickly won them over, and Coconut embraced Bubba immediately! 

Soon enough, the pair formed an unlikely but heartwarming friendship.

Bubba proved he was serious about sticking around when he started waiting at Cay’s back door every morning, ready for his daily adventure with his new friends.

Cay initially thought Bubba might belong to a neighbor, but soon learned he was a well-loved local stray without a home or name.

Despite Bubba’s wandering ways, Cay, her husband, and Coconut welcomed this interesting feline into their lives. 

They officially named him Bubba and made him a part of their family. Their walks evolved into fun backyard play sessions, bringing joy to all four of them.

Coconut was extremely happy to have a new feline playmate. He was more playful than ever and it was clear that Coconut and Bubba had quickly formed a deep bond.

However, Cay faced a challenge in integrating Bubba into their household, as he was initially hesitant to come inside.

To ease Bubba’s transition, Cay began feeding him in their laundry room, which was a spot where Cay’s other cats couldn’t bother him.

She kept the door to the garage open so Bubba wouldn’t feel trapped, and the door from the laundry room to the house remained closed, as she explained in an interview:

“So we fed him in there most evenings for a few months. And then once he got comfortable, we started feeding our other cats on the other side of that closed door so the cats could kind of sniff each other through the door.”

With time and patience, Bubba began to see Cay’s home as his own. He felt the safety and warmth his new hooman friends offered, which made him curious enough to peek inside.

One night, Cay saw him coming up to their back door and opened it. He walked right in, hopped onto the table, and started eating the other cats’ food. She joked:

“I thought, well, this is different. But I’m not going to complain!”

And just like that, Bubba settled into his new life. Though there were some initial squabbles with the other cats, everyone soon adjusted, and Bubba found his place in the family.

As you might have guessed, Coconut was thrilled to have his best buddy by his side! All the cats learned to live together harmoniously, they hissed a little at first, but there were no fights. As Cay explained:

“We can have all three cats in one room, and we don’t have any hissing, we don’t have any power struggle, and that’s really nice to get to that point. We’re finally at a point where the cats can exist altogether pretty seamlessly. And that makes me really happy.”

The house is now filled with joy as Bubba and Coconut continue to play just like they did from the very beginning. Bubba’s inner kitten shines through every time they play together, bringing a new lease on life to the friendly former-stray tabby.

Their story not only warms our hearts but also reminds us that love and friendship can blossom in the most unexpected ways. 

As Cay posted on Instagram

“Bubba may be from the streets but he’s put that life behind him now!”

In a world that often emphasizes differences, the bond between Bubba and Coconut is a beautiful example of bonds that can form when we embrace others with open arms.
