This 9-year-old ginger cat has been working at a store every day for the past 9 years. He loves his job and his customers, and has never taken a day off.

When Bobo was a kitten, he needed a home. An employee from a mom and pop store in Chinatown, New York, decided to bring him in so he could have a place to stay.

A kind lawyer who has 4 cats of her own, also helped out by supplying food and taking Bobo to the vet for his checkups and shots.

"At the store, he likes to sit near the entrance and greet customers. He has his own scratcher lounge towards the front of the store and likes to sit there. He also likes to look out the window, a curious cat!" Annie Liao, an employee of the store, told Love Meow.

Ever since Annie started working at the store in 2014, she's become Bobo's caregiver and his biggest fan.

"Bobo's personality is calm and friendly. He is the only cat in the store. He's the king of the store!"

Annie decided to set up an Instagram for this adorable feline, so others could also enjoy Bobo's daily adventures.

Bobo welcomes a special customer, a furry friend, into the store.

Bobo has more experience working at the store than most employees there.

He's a wise cat and can offer a tip or two on how to run a store.

Bobo loves his customers. He likes to meow at them when they come in and show them around.

"He does a better job than me!" Annie said.

This is how Bobo 'runs' the store!

He keeps everything in check and makes sure the employees aren't slacking off!

"Mr. Bobo has found his way into the jungle of bamboo and bowls."

Even the most hard working cat needs a break sometimes.


After nearly 10 years of working at the local store, Bobo moved into his forever home in a different location.
