Let’s face it; working every single day can be tiring and tedious. Everyone needs a few days off to revitalize themselves, right? And especially if you were a cat – a creature known for their love of naps and lounging around – days off would met with a lot of enthusiasm!
But not for this Bobo the shopkeeper cat! He’s been working non-stop for 9 years, and he’s nowhere near retiring.
Bobo is ginger cat who is an employee in a store in Chinatown, New York. The owner found him one day and decided to give him a place to stay. This was 9 years ago, and Bobo has thanked his rescuer by working relentlessly in his store without a single day off! Now that’s dedication!
Annie Liao, the shopkeeper who has worked at the store since 20014, has become Bobo’s caregiver and number one human. She affectionately calls him “the king of the store,” and he’s also eager to meet and greet new customers while showing them around.
Bobo has become such an iconic part of the store that Liao has even created an Instagram account for him, so that people can check out what this clever cat is up to!
The King of the Store welcomes new customers with a meow and is eager to show them around.
He’s a dedicated employee who has never taken a single day off in his 9 years of service.
Bobo is 11.5 pounds of pure joy and shopkeeping seriousness.
He’ll encourage you to try your luck at the lottery tickets. Who knows, Bobo’s good fortune just might rub off on you!
Bobo is very calm, loving, and friendly to both the shop employees and to customers.
Though you may sometimes find him in the oddest of places in the shop.
He’ll make sure you always receive your exact change!
And he’ll inspect the store’s goods, making sure everything is in top condition!
