|BoBo's word would have to be "life-altering." If you read his page, it basically says that he revealed to us the soul of animals. I've always been of the opinion that if I have a soul, so do my pets. Now I espouse that if my pets have a soul, so do all the other little animals of the world. Although I have always been compassionate toward animals, getting so close to BoBo, loving him and being loved back so intensely, made my husband and I make lots of changes in our lives when we saw what other cats in this country and the world have to endure at the hands of humans. He was the inspiration for us expanding our compassion to include all animals. After 7 years of being a college drop-out, I went back to school and I'll soon(ish) be going to law school to study and practice animal law. Every success I experience in my mission I owe to him.
Of course, he showed us what it meant to be willing to do anything for someone you love. I could go on ennumerating the ways BoBo changed our lives and altered our worldview. Though I'm sure if you asked him what he did to inspire all of it, he'd say, "I was just bein' me!"
