'[Bob] has entranced London like no feline since the days of Dick Whittington.' (Evening Standard)

The uplifting true story of an unlikely friendship between a man on the streets of Covent Garden and the ginger cat who adopts him and helps him heal his life. Now a major motion picture starring Luke Treadaway.

When James Bowen found an injured, ginger street cat curled up in the hallway of his sheltered accommodation, he had no idea just how much his life was about to change. James was living hand to mouth on the streets of London and the last thing he needed was a pet.

Yet James couldn't resist helping the strikingly intelligent tom cat, whom he quickly christened Bob. He slowly nursed Bob back to health and then sent the cat on his way, imagining he would never see him again. But Bob had other ideas.

Soon the two were inseparable and their diverse, comic and occasionally dangerous adventures would transform both their lives, slowly healing the scars of each other's troubled pasts.

A Street Cat Named Bob is a moving and uplifting story that will touch the heart of anyone who reads it.

Great book. True story.
I love this book. It's an easy read. And has a bunch of sweet moments. But does tell of life on the streets. I love cats and live in an area where there are a lot of street people and having once been one myself could identify with it. The book is not a tragic book though. For the most part its upbeat. And tells of their adventures.

A Street Cat Named Bob
Good read whether you like cats or not! My cat sits on my shoulder when we go out for walks, so it was easy to relate to this story. This true story is a good example of how positive the interaction between humans and animals can be, for both.
