Bobbi, a dog, and Bob Cat, a cat, survived Hurricane Katrina and endured four months on their own in the devastated city of New Orleans. The animals' survival and devotion to each other were remarkable, but when they were brought to a shelter, the volunteers discovered something even more surprising: "Bob Cat was blind! All that time on their own, Bobbi had been Bob Cat's seeing-eye dog." After the story was reported on national television, one woman traveled all the way from Oregon to adopt them. Includes a photograph of the Two Bobbies. Full-color gouache illustrations.
