Cat Gets Student ID

Cat Gets High School Student ID Card Just Like Everyone Else

School is about to be back in session for most students, including Bubba, a furry feline fixture at a California high school.

When Bubba's humans first brought him home in 2009, they tried to keep him inside until they soon realized he wasn't having that. They let him out to roam around, and he kept finding himself on the grounds of the middle school and high school in his backyard. Over the years, the faculty and staff at the schools have grown accustomed to Bubba's presence and allow him to sit in on classes as he pleases.

"He's really social and he has no fear. I'm surprised he's still around," Bubba's human, Amber Marienthal, told San Jose Mercury News. Marienthal said there was even a time when Bubba laid down in the middle of the soccer field while practice was happening, just waiting for someone to pet him.


But what is maybe the coolest part of Bubba's story is that the high school issued him a student body ID card for the upcoming school year, just like the rest of the students. Now Bubba is officially official.
