Furiends today it’s my purrleasure to introduce you all to Bubba DaBoatKat for this weeks Caturday Connections! Welcome Bubba!
Tell us a little bit about yourself Bubba.
I am Bubba Daboatkat, but my real name is catptain dork e fuzzbutt, born in a punk rock band house in June of 2006, momma saved me from the noise and insanity.
How do you spend an average day of your life?
My average day these days is spent sleeping and hunting. I love tail of gekko. Momms doesn’t like me chasing em – she likes the lil guys. But, ye know, they tastes more like chikkin than birdees do.
What’s your favourite hobby?
My favorite hobby is herding momms and sleeping, I used to kill birdees. I was really good at it until one pushed me into the lagoon one night. I tried to make a lot of noise but momms thought the noise was a fisherman fishing with rocks. They do that in lagoons in Mexico. Makes the fishies come off the bottom so they can catch em…….
Tell us about who you live with? Do you like them?
I live with momms. She talks to someone sometimes. I know it isn’t me.. but….ye gotta wonder, sometimes. I LOVE my momms. I give her presents, nip her ankles to remind her to do something, like sit down, go to bed… you know, stuff she needs to be doing. Feeding me, scritchying me, you know…stuff she needs to do. If I hear a funny noise I will sit next to it until she gets the hint. sometimes she is a lil slow. Mebbe she deaf.
Momms rescued me from that noisy smokey mean house when I was a little baby. I fitted inside her shirt for a few hours, she sed it was a few hours, but I thought it was all my life, in a car we went. It was quiet and I could hear her heartbeat, so I was happy. When that was done, it was quiet for elebenty seben then she pulled me out of her shirt- it was sooo quiet!!! She was in a small thing she called a kayak in the stuff the new home was sitting in. Momms called that stuff water. She sed do not fall in. She got onto the house and called it a boat. It was bright and bouncy. There was food and there was litter pan and everything all there. I purred loudly to show her I approved.
Have you always lived afloat or have you been on land too? Where are you happiest… On land or at sea?
The loud mean folks where I started my life was on land. I hated that. I am very happy with momms in da boat. We went to land for that nasty storm, momma called it poatriia, and I hated that. I was safer in my cave in our home. Momms calls our home a Formosa. Is big enough I don’t have to feel her feets on my tail when I eat my fudz.
Where’s your favourite place to relax?
My favorite place to relax is in momms clothes. The old warm ones she just took off.
What’s the worst thing you’ve ever done? (Don’t be shy it’s good to get it out in the open.)
I put a furball into momms clean clothes. Hee hee hee and she didn’t show good appreciation when I killed the seagull.
What do you think your next big adventure in life will be?
My weirdest adventure was when we went on a what momms calls airplane elebenty seben ago and sailed on someone else’s boat…. it was weird. Momms was there, and so was someone else. He would rub my chin nice….but I like momms and my home bestest. It is very comfy and has good caves for hiding.
Where’s the best place you’ve ever visited in the boat?
Everyhere momms goes is good, but I think I liked Barra de Anvidad best. Less things to scare me, and not many folks to bother me. Fish was a little old, though. Old harbor of mazatlan, where I killed the seagull was nice- not many folks and goood fresh fish. I gibs this one 5 paws review
Have you ever been for a swim? Did you like it?
Ohhhhhnoooooooo not swim. The night heron pushed me into the lagoon in Barra de Navidad. I hung onto the chain and ropes in the pointy end, it was wet and cold. I was sooo very good i didn’t call out to momma or sing the song of our people in trouble. I thought I could get out. I was there more than elebenty seben for sure. Momms sed was many hours. I know that. I was cold.
Finally momms called where is my bubba, so I called to her in best I am dying voice I could make. She ran to get me, and I swam to the dinghy. Was soooo hard to swim when I was sooo cold. I didn’t think I could make it to her.. I was breathing water when she pulled me out. I didn’t even fight her, I was too cold. Momms put me in a nice warm towel smelled like her and I went into a deeep sleeeep.. momms sed she couldn’t feel anything of me nothing. But I was soooo cold. When I finally woke she was crying and I was nice n warm so I purred. She stopped crying and we sat like that for a bit. Momms told me how very good I am. …. she calls me purrr fect.
If somebody asked you for advice and you only had a few minutes to give them your best tip, what would it be?
Find a momms like mine and a boat like mine and be very very good. Life is really fun.
Do you have a website or social media channel where we can follow your future adventures?
Thank you so much for coming today Bubba, I’ve loved getting to know you better and I hope I never have to experience a nasty night heron pushing me in the water like you did!
Happy Caturday Evfurryone!
