The Internet falls in love with the healthy ‘Old Trucker’ and his rescue kitten Bobbie





The internet has fallen in love with a truck driver and his rescue kitten-turned-friend after videos of the adorable duo were viewed millions of times on social media.

TikTok user @old_trucker of Bear Creek, Alabama, racked up millions of views on his account after he started uploading videos of his rescue kitten Bobbie earlier this year.

Viewers were first introduced to ginger kitten Bobbie in an August video, and their hearts melted with the desire for more updates on the perfect partnership.

But with a video uploaded in September, more viewers learned about Bobbie, receiving an impressive 4.8 million votes for the update.

In the clip, Bobbie can be seen playing with a green toy ball on the dashboard as @old_trucker lets viewers know more about his time with the little kitten.

He said: “Bobbie is doing a great job. She is doing very well. She loves that dashboard and she has a few toys up there that she plays with all day long.

“My glove box is open now, it stays open. I used to keep plasters, stuff there. One day I reached in to get some plasters and while I was fixing a few leaks I had with myself, she moved into the glove compartment.”

He added: “I told my wife and she says, ‘Bobbie now owns the truck and mine.’ That little cat there is a blessing to me. I love that little thing.”

Viewers couldn’t get enough of the duo and more than 23,000 shared their thoughts in the comments.

One user said: “Aww, she’s so sweet. I’m so glad you found each other.”

Another added: “This is the best. What a great companion on your travels.”

A third commented: “This is simply the sweetest and purest. Stay safe Bobby and old truck driver [sic].”

“There’s something about that cat that’s so sweet and you love it so much that you really get into the feeling,” typed a fourth user.

In the months that followed, @old_trucker racked up millions of views and over the past few months regularly tens of thousands of views.

@Old_trucker has continued to adopt and care for several kittens and even take them out with them in large travel trunks.

He now has a whopping 289,000 followers on TikTok and has racked up an impressive 3.7 million views.
