Robert admits that he found it very comforting being able to share his thoughts with somebody even if it’s a cat. He couldn’t believe that a cat can make him feel that way, even his wife admits that once these two were together Robert become a totally different person.

He connected with Hemi so much that once Robert got deployed it went looking for him. At that point Hemi become the lost cat. Nobody had an idea where it was.
