Bobs the super senior cat was 18 and a half years old when he was surrendered to a high-kill shelter along with his sister, Whitney. After his sister passed away a few months later, Bobs became lonely and sad.

Kelley Peters, human mom of Justin the fire survivor, found Bobs and took him into her loving arms and gave him a comfortable home where there would be many furry friends to keep him company, so he would never be alone again.

Bobs misses his sister, but she will forever live in his heart.
