Mr. Bubz does not like being kissed and cuddled by his mom’s boyfriend, thankyouverymuch.
But her boyfriend James (dubbed “Garbageman” by Mr. Bubz in his Instagram account) is not part of their little twosome.
In a video that immediately went viral, Mr. Bubz is being cuddled by James, and he is so not cool with it.
He hisses. He growls. He protests.
“I love you, Mr. Bubz,” James says. “Do you love me too?”
Mr. Bubz spikes the camera and freezes, perhaps noticing his owner is catching this all on film.

“Yeah, I got you. I got this on camera,” his mom says.
(And the internet is rejoicing that she did.)
Naturally, after a second of looking guilty and possibly just a little bit chagrined, Mr. Bubz hisses once more.
Lizze affectionately described her grumpy puppy as a “demon-possum hybrid”, and said that he can be “paranoid and shady but a total joy.”
After the video was uploaded, Mr. Bubz was catapulted to fame. His buggy eyes, his indignant hissing, his repulsion of the snuggles bestowed upon him from his mom’s friend — it all struck a chord with grumpy people everywhere.
“James loves Bubz, so he’s been trying to bond with him,” Lizze told BuzzFeed. “But every time he tries to cuddle him, Bubz makes that hissing noise and I FINALLY GOT IT ON CAMERA!!!”
Step aside, Grumpy Cat.
Mr. Bubz is now king of all things grump.
