Kubi and the Golden Larch

Kubi the Nursery Cat

Kubi, a very laid-back, handsome cat, lives at Camellia Forest Nursery in Chapel Hill. He was named for his habit of crawling into the bucket of the nursery’s Kubota tractor when naptime was imminent.

When I saw Kubi (pronounced “Cubby”), he was lounging under a golden larch (pseudolarix amabilis) in a large container near the nursery office. His more-timid predecessor (below) left the plant life a year ago, when she was adopted by a a local family.
