hi all! well Bob is back from foster. His foster family went away to Asia for 3 weeks. They were heartbroken and so is Bob. Poor baby... :sad:That boy is so sensitive. He broke out of 2 cages on the day he came back and he injured his head and paw... I found him a suitable cage yesterday.

Since the SPCA was closed to adopters yesteray and today, Bob hung out with us all day!!! He played Kong for 6 hours yesterday and today, he chewed a bone and followed me around. I am trying to make the transition form foster to shelter as easy as possible.
