TBC adopted Roscoe & BoBo at the Cherokee County Animal Rescue in January 2008. BoBo was just over 4 years old and Roscoe was just over 2 years and both were previously stray cats. They are both very loving cats that happily greet anyone who walks through our doors. They sleep on our desks and help us with our paperwork, literally! While as we give them a great home they give us so much more!
