A beautiful story of two unlikely friends who took care of each other when nobody else could.

My husband is a survivor of Hurricane Katrina and was there with other members of the military when the storm took out his hometown and scattered his family and friends. Our son brought this book home from school last night. We both cried when we read it to him. It's hard to believe that a children's book was so touching. Thank you!

Although set during the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina, the true nature of the story is the intense friendship between a cat and a dog who were presumed to have been abandoned in the wake of the storm. The two rely on each other for survival in the barren streets, are displaced to a makeshift animal shelter, and ultimately find a new home halfway across the country when their plight is told on cable news. There's even a surprise twist that makes their story all the more touching and heartwarming.

In The Two Bobbies, one abandoned cat and one lost dog join together in a warm, heartfelt true story of love, courage and survival during Hurricane Katrina.
Their story is one for the heart!

"Synopsis" by ,
Nearly 75 million dogs live with American families, where many sleep in our beds, walk us to school, and eat our unwanted broccoli. However, millions of dogs are born in America each year without a place to live. Most of these animals find themselves in shelters, and many, if they are not adopted, are put to sleep. Raymond Bial takes readers into the genesis of the dog overpopulation problem, covering puppy mills, pet stores, and backyard breeders, and then he profiles a local animal shelter, sharing with readers the ins and outs of daily life there. Who runs animal shelters? Who plays with the pets? How long do they stay? And how can you adopt one?
"Synopsis" by ,

Bobbi and Bob Cat are the best of friends. When their hometown of New Orleans was struck by Hurricane Katrina, many lost everything. But not Bobbi and Bob Cat—they still had each other. Only by staying together could they survive. This is the story of their remarkable friendship.
