SAFE 4/7/18 OUR OLDEST TIMER STILL HERE & NEEDS YOU! Adorable Half Mustache! Beautiful 14-Year Old Girl BOBBI at BACC! A volunteer writes: Bobbi reminds me of a sugar packet — just a small package of sweetness. She meowed a hello when I approached her kennel, and she came right up to ask for pets and head scratches and body rubs. She is very affectionate and friendly. She loved my offering of treats and was comfortable eating her food while I was standing pretty close to her. This tiny girl has a huge heart and would be a wonderful loving companion in a forever home.
