Cute Animal Videos of the Day: Odd Couple Bob the Emu and Nubby the Cat

Cute Animal Videos of the Day: Odd Couple Bob the Emu and Nubby the Cat

Bob is a music-loving and cat-befriending emu who loves to hop his way around Popes Gardens in New Jersey. He spends his days seeking out new animals to play with and new people to feed him worms.

Bob’s favorite playmate, Nubby the cat, warmed to Bob early on when she realized that the emu chick just wanted to have a bit of fun:


Though the two are similar in size, Bob’s usually the one who keeps Nubby on her toes:


To square the playing field, though, Bob occasionally gives Nubby a chance to “retaliate.”  (Bob doesn’t seem too worried – Nubby’s plan of attack mostly involves hugging.)

So funny to watch Bob run after Nubby. Wait until Bob gets bigger, Nubby will have a long way to jump up for a hug.

Very good. Thanks.

Just lovely. But poor Nubby seems a bit confused. Her natural instincts say 'go for that jugular' but because she's a loved and well fed kitty she just wants to lick and nurture.
That hard old beak isn't very good for smooches though.
