It seems like Bobo, an orange cat rescued by Stray Rescue of St. Louis, knew he needed help and seeking out a kind human would be the best way to get it. The little stray walked up to people sitting outside a restaurant, greeting them all until he finally got the attention he so smartly sought.

The cat had large sores on his lips and mouth, but luckily the rescue team got to him as soon as possible to find out what his condition was and to help him.

The rescuers had feared that the sores on Bobo’s mouth were cancerous tumors – but it turned out that they were the results of a really bad allergy!

Once his tests were back, Bobo was put on medicine and his swelling has been going down.

He is now feeling better and better – and has just moved into his foster home.



Bobo is quite a self-starter and he is now waiting for his forever home and the perfect person to be his new best friend. If you are interested in adopting Bobo, visit Stray Rescue of St. Louis’ website.

Bobo, the cat surely knows and feels kind hearted people.

Cat\'s do not walk up to people to ask for help. How completely absurd and ludicrous.

Well Ted, just goes to show how ignorant you really are. One of my adult cats, who spent its life outside, came to me at my home asking for help. He was suffering and when I took him to the vet found out he was FIV+, had worms, parasites, loaded with fleas and had severe dental problems to the point that all but his canine teeth had to be removed. So why, pray tel, after living outside his entire life as a free cat, he finally decided to come to my back door for help? Even in severe pain, he was nothing but gentle, asking for nothing but love. He got it. I guess it takes special insight to recognize animals in need. Too bad you don\'t have it.

Tons of love to the people who didn\'t turn their back on Bobo\'s suffering.
What a beautiful cat. That fur, and those eyes!
This gorgeous guy shouldn\'t have any trouble finding that loving home all cats, and dogs, deserve.

This car went to the right people, who did the right thing to make his mouth heal.
