Frank und Jubilee Bonkowski: Bob, the Sand Cat




Sand cats look just like any ordinary cat. The only difference, and maybe you can guess this by its name, is that its fur is the colour of sand. This is most helpful if your home happens to be the Israeli desert and you do not want to stand out. Nobody in Israel has cats as house pets and they are rarely petted or stroked. Bob was one of those sand cats and he usually did not mind that he was not noticed. Even so, one day Bob had this dream.“Just once in my life I want to do something big, something important, something that helps other cats. Just once I want to be liked and I want people to notice me.“ Then tragedy strikes and Bob gets his chance.
