Cay and his partner are the happy owners of Coconut , an Australian Shepherd , and 2 indoor cats. The young couple regularly walks their dog in the neighborhood, and very quickly, an unlikely visitor decided to join them.
An affectionate cat
“ While we were walking, a cat started following us,” Cay tells The Dodo . Coconut sniffed him, and the next moment he rolled onto his back. He meowed at her and purred. »
After this first meeting, the tabby cat accompanied Coconut and her masters on each of their daily walks. Cay thought the cat belonged to one of his neighbors, but that was not the case.
A fusional link
Bubba knows where Coconut lives and has gotten into the habit of coming to play with her when she is in his garden. “ If he hears us [outside], he jumps over the fence and they immediately start playing. Almost every day he plays with Coconut ,” says Cay .
A cat made for the outdoors
Since Bubba has only known the street, Cay was initially hesitant to bring him into her home. At first, she let him in, while her other cats and Coconut were kept in a separate room.
Cay, however, quickly understood that this was not for him. “ He is very nervous inside, and I often find him meowing near the doors, waiting for me to take him out. We feed him inside to make him feel more comfortable, but he usually doesn’t eat until we let him into the garage. »
The understanding between Bubba and the 2 cats in the household is not yet in good shape, but Cay is “ still working on it ”. In the meantime, the feline continues to spend quality time with his beloved Coconut , which seems to be all he needs to be happy.
