Bobo is a ginger cat who has been reigning peacefully over his domain for nine years!
When this magnificent tabby was only a little kitten, he wasn't lucky enough to have a warm place to call home. An employee in a shop in Chinatown in New York therefore decided to take him to work so that he'd have a place to sleep and be bottle fed. It has now been nine years since Bobo started working at the shop, without taking a single day of leave! He loves his job, and of course, the customers.
‘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 says.
Annie started to work at the shop in 2014 and immediately became the person who looked after Bobo, becoming his favourite human! Bobo puts his heart and soul into everything, welcoming each customer with a miaow and often accompanies them around the shop. Annie likes to call him the 'king of the store'. He is calm, friendly and loving. The employees even created an Instagram account for him that they often post on.
We're not the only people to have taken an interest in Bobo - recently we posted an article about Andrew Marttila, who has also been round to visit Bobo!
Bobo looks after the till...
...looks after the customers...
...and gets petted by the customers!
But watch out, thieves, Bobo is also a guard-cat!
He rules his domaine with an iron paw...
...but always takes the time to entertain his subjects!
Long live King Bobo!
