The Cochrane and Area Humane Society (CAHS) is the new home for a memorial bench that celebrates the life of Robert (Bobby) Mauch. The custom bench was commissioned by Robert’s sister, Monica Wade, and her family. The family also donated $3,000 in Robert’s memory.

Robert’s love for cats drove him to spend his life rescuing, visiting, and caring for the felines in the shelter. A white, Persian cat was designed into the bench, which was one of Robert’s favourites.  

Anyone is welcome to visit the bench on CAHS property, which faces the windows of the cat rooms.
