Foster cat dad Abdul Williams shared a funny video featuring his first foster cat, Bambi. Before meeting Bambi, Abdul didn’t think he was a cat person, but she changed his perception and whole world.
After taking in (and later deciding to adopt) Bambi, Abdul and his wife Shamiyan began Abdul’s Cats, sharing their adventures on social media. Because of this kitty, Abdul hopes to run a cat rescue of his own someday. For now, they foster kittens regularly in the home.
As with any parent, the way you care for furbabies changes over time. At first, you might approach it with kid gloves, feeling cautious and nervous holding the baby. Over time, you become accustomed to holding them as your bond strengthens. Then, there is mutual trust, playfulness, confidence, and familiarity.
One of the best parts of being owned by a cat is knowing they trust you fully, no matter how silly you can be. In fact, they tend to either love it or are completely unphased when you are a big goof.
How Abdul Holds Bambi – Then Vs. Now
Recently, Abdul shared a cute video showing how things have changed in how he holds Bambi over the years. In the beginning, he held the tabby cat carefully in an expected manner, cradling her carefully and securely. Then, the images progress to Abdul holding Bambi in a ridiculous and playful way. As you can see, she lets him get away with anything, knowing he would never harm her.
“Bambi and I have a special relationship – I’m ridiculous and she puts up with it. I love her little tail swishes 😂 What does your cat let you get away with?”
In another video, Abdul shared funny things cat people do, and it’s spot on.
- Show the cat their reflection
- Hold their cat like a baby.
- Help their cat “hunt.”
Funny Things Cat People Do
In part two, he holds Bambi aloft like she’s in The Lion King. Near an open window, he shows her the outside world.
Then, he shows how he leaves boxes and bags out for the cats to find, checking to see if they like them.
Bambi’s Many Nicknames
Along with funny ways of holding Bambi, there are lots of funny nicknames for her.
“Just a few things I call Bambi 😂 Which is your favorite? And let me know what other names you call your pet! For those of you new to my page, Bambi is my resident cat!” he writes.
Some of Bambi’s nicknames include:
- Bamb Chops
Also, these two have funny conversations, especially when things are quiet.
“Conversations with Bambi 😂 It’s been quiet while we wait for our next foster kittens. Bambi gets more vocal when she’s the only cat around! What happens when you meow at your cat?”
Recently, we shared the story of Abdul’s foster kittens Ash and Ember. Now, he has his hands full with helping more adorable foster kittens. As always, Bambi will play a role as a foster mom, helping them adjust, socialize, and become ready to find the best possible forever homes. When they start their new lives, Bambi gets a little break, some peace and quiet, and more quality/silly time with dad.
