Bubba is daughter Kelsey's solution to having a cat that "won't get as big as a Maine Coon so I can't carry it around."  His nickname is from the movie Forest Gump.  Aussie Hopper is a fishing fly.  Bubba is a neutered European Burmese and considers himself to be smarter than the average human.  Kelsey treats Bubba like her doll and has given him his own drawer for his wardrobe.  Bubba is extremely photogenic and looks good in clothes so scroll all the way down.
