Shortlisted for: Popular Non-Fiction Book of the Year - Specsavers National Book Awards 2012
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 hears it.

":D ❤️ Loved it!"
Beautiful and emotional true story. Opened my eyes a bit more to real life problems. A great read to inspire the Christmas spirit.
"Good heartfelt book."
Being a cat lover I was drawn to this book anyway. I enjoyed the frank and honest way in which the author told his story. The book also gave me more insight into issues faced by drug users among other things.
