Hobo is the namesake of Hobo Hotel, which for 10 years as been locating good homes for rescued Lake Charles-area cats.
As hotel volunteers cheered and felines frolicked, Hobo seemed to take the celebration in stride.
After all, she’s seen many a volunteer and many a cat in the decade that the hotel has been in business, a business that hasn’t really changed all that much since Hobo was a sprightly 15.
“What we want to do is continue to encourage people to be responsible pet owners. Spay and neuter your cats, take care of them, keep them inside, get them the proper medical care and just be responsible,” Robin Anderson, Hobo Hotel board member, told KLPC TV.
