My Friendly Cat Bob

Updated on August 28, 2012



Bob The Bobcat

My furry friend Bob is a brown Tabby with a bobtail.  I brought Bob home from a farm as a kitten about two years ago.  He is the friendliest cat I've ever known.  He welcomes everyone with affection.  Sometimes Bob is way too friendly.  When someone comes to our house Bob will try to climb their pant leg. They have no choice but to offer him attention.  He refuses to be ignored.  Bob is also very curious.  No matter what anyone is doing outdoors, Bob is there to observe them.  If they are under the hood of a car or unloading a truck he thinks they want his help.  He likes to climb trees, chase things, and look in the windows at the dogs to get them barking.  Bob is a real nuisance. But I think the world of him.



Bob Sneaks Into Cars

One day my husband Bill jumped in his truck and drove to the store.  As he was nearly there Bob came from out behind his seat.  Bill was surprised he never noticed him get in with him.  The store clerk and Bill joked about it as they watched Bob who was walking back and forth on the dash of the truck.  The store clerk said, " I have a mouse I've been trying to catch maybe he can help."  Bill laughed, "He'd be more help than you want."  After that ride Bill looked for Bob before he left the house.

One day Bob got in my car when I got home from work.  He's very sneaky I didn't see him get in.  Three hours later I went to the car to go somewheres.  There was Bob looking at me through the window.  It was cold that night.  I am so glad I went back to the car.  But it wasn't until the next day when I was returning from work that I noticed Bob left me a surprise in the back seat.  Guess he needed his litter box.

The mail lady pulled in our driveway with a package to deliver. Bob jumped right in her car.  He is way to friendly for his own good.  I am so afraid someday he'll go for a ride with someone and not come back.


Center of Attention

Bob loves to ride with my husband Bill, on the four wheeler. The neighbors must get a kick out of watching Bill plow the driveway with a cat on his shoulder. The snow doesn't seem to bother Bob much. He even gets in the way when we shovel snow.

Bob will follow me down our long driveway to the mailbox and he's right at my feet walking back to the house.

Bob loves to have his belly rubbed. He lays on his back for anyone to rub his belly. He just can't get enough attention. He demands it.

I am so glad I live in the country where Bob can be free to explore the great outdoors.  He loves it.  He is a very special pet.  I hope his demand for attention doesn't get him into much more trouble. 

Rip Bob

Sadly last fall I backed over my dear friend, Bob in our driveway. I was heart broken to think I caused his death. I know I may never have another cat quite like him again. I do have many good memories of the two and a half years he was a part of my family. I miss him dearly.

      Thanks tlmcgaa70. It saddens me to say I ran over Bob in our drive way about 3 months ago. I always watched out for him but he came running out too fast. He was a special pet and I miss him dearly. I'm sorry I didn't posted that comment to this hub earlier.
