Bubba’s Award Winning Photo

Recently a member of our own household became an Animal In Entertainment. Bubba won the Pets’ Pride week #14 Contest from our local radio station WBLM!

Bubba showed his Patriots pride by wearing his Tom Brady shirt. That and his adorable face won him his spot on week #14.

WBLM is giving all of their winners a $50 gift card to a small niche’ pet shop in the Portland area.

When I was contacted by ‘BLM staff, they asked for a bit of history on Bubba. Here it is:

Bubba (Formerly known as Bobby) was surrendered to a shelter in Macon, Ga when he was 3 months old. After his stay there for a couple months, he made his way North. Many Southern shelters like to reach out to their Northern friends becasue there are far less “kill” shelters in the North.

So Bubba (Bobby) made his way to the frozen northern states to be taken in by a shelter there.

And there he stayed for 3 years!

Until we came along in September. I had all intentions of looking at puppies that day but Bubba’s non-chalant kitty way pursuaded me otherwise. I quickly and quietly opened the latch of his kennel door. I wasn’t sure if the general public was allowed to hold the cats without a shelter employee’s permission, but Bubba was worth the risk.

I opened up that door and put him right on my lap. He was so cool, calm, and collected. I fell in love.

I was able to convnce my mate that Bubba was needed in our household and soon after that we had signed off on his adoption papers.

Bubba didn’t come without flaws. He doesn’t really know how to purr since, he didn’t have much reason to. He also didn’t know how to be around other cats since he had grown up being rather anti-social. He had some dental issues and wasn’t very used to being touched and handled.

But in spite of his initial challenges, Bubs has blossomed into the most loving kitty.
