Hi, I’m Bobby! I’m a gorgeous black kitty who is looking for a stable, loving retirement home to spend my life in. I’ve been bounced around a bit due to no fault of my own, so being here at the shelter has really taken it’s toll on me. I would love to find an understanding, patient and loving family who will accept me as I am (which on most days is friendly, but some days a little sassy)! If you think you’re up for this small task, please come by and meet me; I would love to be your new kitty!
