Bobo is sweetheart — calm, affectionate, well behaved, and litter box trained.  He is an ear-tipped community cat who was found limping around on Merritt Island.  A good samaritan took him to a cat rescue.  A trip to an animal hospital for X-rays determined he had a broken front leg, with a BB lodged in the break.  The first animal hospital suggested amputation might be neccessary.  Based on a second opinion from another clinic, it was decided to try to save Bobo's leg.  As of mid December 2016, amputation seems extremely unlikely.
Bobo used his injured leg with a splint on it (see Dec. 2nd, below).  He even tried to remove the first splint by himself a couple days ahead of schedule.  Now that his broken leg is healed, Bobo is looking for a new home.

Bobo tested negative for feline leukemia (FeLV) and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV).  He is up to date on vaccinations, and has a micro-chip.  He has also been treated recently for fleas and other parasites.
