bubbathefatPoor Bubba has not even gone on line yet and he is already being trolled. If anything proves that some women on Twitter are nuts, it is the pair that had a raging debate about my upcoming sidekick Bubba The Fat.

The ladies did let the cat out of the bag since Bubba IS a cat.

bubbameaningSo, how did Bubba come to reside here and how did he get HIS name?

catinjailWell, Bubba is a rescue. A neighbor in the Mobile Home park where I live adopted him from the Orange County Florida animal shelter. Whoever owned Bubba originally gave him his name.

She had the now three year old Bubba for two years. About two months ago she approached me with her dilemma. She was going to move to western Colorado to live with her Daughter.

catkillShe feared that she would have to put Bubba back in the same shelter he was adopted from and knew that since the shelter is NOT designated a no kill shelter, he faced a terrible fate.

I did check around and tried to find Bubba a new home. Everyone in the park either had pets of their own or did not want any kind of animal. I asked around locally and nobody wanted to adopt poor Bubba.

This is the third cat I adopted from people who either moved or otherwise had to give them up.

justiceThe first cat was Justice, who I rescued from being taken to the Lake County animal shelter when her owner had to give her up due to pets not being allowed where she was moving to. Justice became a mascot on my webcasts when she appeared behind me one day and the viewers started chatting about her. One troll actually stole this image and made a twitter account with her image on it.  Justice passed away due to eating tainted meat thrown in her bowl by a teenaged neighbor.

misskittyThe second cat was Miss Kitty. She was hanging around the mobile home I rented when I moved to Orlando. She sort of adopted me. She remained with me at the Orlando trailer until shortly before I moved to where I am at now. A neighbor wanted to take her in and I agreed since I was moving and already had two  pets,amberandme Amber, my long haired dachshund mix who was also a rescue and ambertaz1tazzTaz, a 18 year old  short haired Pomeranian.

I had the idea of making Bubba sort of a side kick/mascot since he adopted the other two cats habit of laying on the back of the chair I sit on when doing my now private webcasts.

The viewers would comment about him in chat.

This did not happen right away as Bubba took quite a while to get used to his new home and the rather playful Amber who would pester the daylights out of him and he would wind up taking refuge under the workstation in my radio room.

The two of them finally worked things out and the two of them get along just fine. Taz took the whole thing in stride. He is a mellow little fellow who just lays there and watches the other two interact with each other.

When I decided to try once again to do public webcasts, I decided to give out hints that Bubba would be coming to join me on my latest stream attempt this March.

I had wanted to keep the secret that Bubba was a cat until the webcasts but had forgotten that there are some rather odd trolls who read my twitter timeline.

One of the women had an absolute fit because she has a cat named MISS Bubba and somehow thought I was trolling HER by naming my cat Bubba.This is rather odd since Bubba is a MALE name, but who am I to judge?

She claimed that I had seen her talk about Miss Bubba on her social media account and named gave Bubba his name out of spite.

SAY WHAT?????

In all honesty, this is the first I have heard of Miss Bubba.

There was soon a raging conversation between her and another equally mentally challenged troll over why I named the cat Bubba (which of course you all know, I did not.) and that I would eventually get arrested because of it.

I am not kidding, they actually said that.

So now the story of poor old Bubba the fat is out. He has his own scandal and his own set of trolls that will criticize everything the poor guy does.

Such is life on the internet.

Stay tuned
