So Allen returned to their apartment alone. The place was filled with boxes; people had been using the space for storage during the summer.
Then, a person from Craigslist came by and dropped off a cat.
"It’s me and this cat in the apartment for three weeks, and boxes of stuff," Allen said. "I did lose the cat for like five hours the first day. I called Paul and was like, ‘This thing is gone. I’m sorry. Look for another one — on Craigslist. He’s gone.’"
Not only was Bubbles — named after the "Trailer Park Boys" character — not lost, but he and Allen have become quite attached. Allen tells Auerbach that his cat is "like a dog. When you walk in and whistle, he just comes running."
Unfortunately, though, Bubbles will reportedly not be making the trip with the Spartans to this year’s Cotton Bowl.
