Meet a young boy, aged 12, who is deaf and has a loving cat that expresses gratitude to him daily by enjoying their time together. On the other hand, there is Corporal Nobby Nobbs, who appears in the eponymous movie. This character was neglected and denied affection while left in a garage in Texas before being saved. Although he was already 12 years old, he still craved love despite his rough exterior.
Upon being found by Karyn Poplin from the Kitty Adventure Rescue League and Sanctuary, Nobbs was immediately drawn to her. He affectionately climbed up her legs for hugs and held on tight. Karyn expressed that they have been inseparable since their first meeting and stated that Nobbs has a deep love for her and her husband, Gerald, as he confides in them.
The duo has helped save many felines in the DFW TX area, including those with unique needs and health issues. However, Nobbs is just like any other cat they’ve come across except for his strong attachment to his owners. He can’t seem to go anywhere without seeking affection from them.
This delightful elderly man has a habit of hollering since he lacks control over his voice. He spends his day making imaginary cookies in the air, and Karyn mentioned that he loves to sleep in their arms under the covers. I must say that he is one of the most affectionate elders I have ever encountered.
Nobbs, who has spent several years in isolation, now craves companionship and love. He expresses his joy and gratitude when he receives affectionate gestures, and reciprocates by snuggling his head endlessly.
According to the owner, he’s compatible with all other felines and a refreshing presence with his enthusiastic and loving demeanor. He never fails to put a smile on people’s faces, providing them with inspiration in moments of despair and comfort during challenging times at the shelter.
It’s not uncommon for Corporal Nobby Nobbs to get extremely jealous when someone else receives attention. In fact, it happens quite often around here. Recently, while holding Archmage Shabadoo in his arms, Nobbs found himself wanting hugs from his human father. At our shelter, we take care of cats with all kinds of ailments. Those that can be adopted find loving homes, while those that can’t stay with us and are provided with comfort throughout their lives.
Upon returning from work, Nobbs greets with a warm embrace, according to Karyn who affectionately describes him as a bit rugged and unexciting, yet still the greatest thing on the planet.
