Or so it appears.
Because if there is one person that makes Bub Bub nervous, it's the other mini tyrant that lives here. Kale LOVES that cat. As soon as Kale rolls out of bed he yells "Bub bub?" and goes full speed into the hallway to find him. Same thing when we come home. Whether we're gone 2 days or 2 minutes, Bub Bub is the first thing Kale thinks about when he opens that door.
Unfortunately, the feeling is not mutual. Eighty percent of the time, Bub Bub wants nothing to do with Kale. He gets nervous when he sees Kale heading for him and runs. If he's not fast enough, he's not afraid to give Kale a swat or two to tell him what's up. However, the other twenty percent of the time Bub Bub appears to show signs of kindness and patience with Kale. He does this by freezing in one spot and allowing Kale to maul him with hugs and kisses. Trust me, it's more love than anyone else around here gets from that cat....
And now I share with you a dozen photo's to demonstrate the evolution of their love.....
|2 months. After Kale was born, Bub Bub went into hiding. This may be the first time that the two were actually in the same room. Seriously.|
|4 months. Kale makes contact for the first time.|
|7 months. A passed out Kale is decidedly less frightening. Bub Bub snuggles in for a nap. (THEY'RE HOLDING HANDS!)|
|9 months. Kale cannot decide on a best friend: the toothbrush or Bub Bub?|
|12 months. Kale discovers the way into Bub Bub's heart is through food. Particularly yogurt.|
|12 months. Now that Kale provides Bub Bub with yogurt, Bub Bub allows him to hug him for 4-5 seconds per day.|
|14 months. Yogurt still does the trick.|
|Does this picture really require a caption? I highly recommend enlarging it to get a better look at the love on Kale's face.|
|Yesterday. 17 months. Nap buddies.|
