Bobby and I met on Monday night as I was passing through the front courtyard on the way to the doublewide. He was a little uncertain about the intentions of this strange human approaching him where he’d been sitting, minding his own business, on the porch of the Connor building, but his reservations were quickly overcome and some serious following, weaving, ankle rubs and headbutts ensued.
In short, a very sweet boy.
Bobby was trapped as a kitten along with his brothers Ralph and Norbert on a farm along No. 9 Road in Richmond. Norbert was adopted by Debbie, while the other two brothers remain at the sanctuary. Bobby had a problem with his knee that kept him off the adoption list fairly early.
Having remained close friends with his brother Ralphie, Bobby doesn’t come across as the least bit unhappy to be living at the sanctuary. Marianne wrote about the pair in the February edition of the RAPSity News, in an article appropriately titled Love, Love, Love.
