Grand birth­day bash for pop­u­lar cat Bu­jibu

New Straits Times - - ENTERTAINMENT - Mokhtazar By Syahi­rah

TURN­ING 3 when you are one of the most pop­u­lar cats in Malaysia only calls for a grand birth­day do, prov­ing that not only hu­mans know how to cel­e­brate birth­days in style.

Bu­jibu Chempel, the pop­u­lar Bri­tish short­hair owned by celebrity cou­ple Hairul Azreen and Ha­nis Za­likha, was treated to a fancy feast to cel­e­brate its birth­day by Pu­rina Malaysia, of which it is the brand am­bas­sador.

“For the past two years, our fam­ily cel­e­brated Bu­jibu’s birth­day with a small and in­ti­mate party, com­plete with its own birth­day cake.

“But, this year, he gets to cel­e­brate his third birth­day with a birth­day bash along­side his furry friends,” said Ha­nis at the birth­day party at SPCA Malaysia on Mon­day.

Ha­nis de­scribes Bu­jibu as a fam­ily mem­ber who brought joy.

“He is a blessed cat who lives a pretty fancy life­style, as we tend to spoil him.

“When we leave him at home to go to work, we make sure that the air-con­di­tion­ing is on since so that he is not hot. We also leave the tele­vi­sion on in case he gets bored,” said Ha­nis.

“I never ex­pected my cat to gain so much pop­u­lar­ity over the years to the point that he lands his own re­al­ity show and be­comes a brand am­bas­sador.”

The plump cat, whose aloof and grumpy per­son­al­ity has cap­tured the hearts of many, has amassed 1.1 mil­lion In­sta­gram fol­low­ers, even beat­ing out some pop­u­lar and well-known Malaysian celebri­ties.
