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.

Say something about yourself!
I would prefer this audio edition to the print version. The narrator does a wonderful job.
I loved all of this story, and I hope Bob and his mate will be happy together for many, many years to come!
This book actually made me cry several times. And I NEVER cry when I read books!
I would recommend this book to any animal lover, such a beautiful story of trust and love.
I would recommend this book to any of my friends who have ever had a connection with an animal. This is a delightful and simple story of two beings finding each other and affecting each others' lives
It took me a little while to get used to the narrator, the style was simple and casual. I enjoyed the imagery of Bob perched atop shoulders, travelling with him to work unperturbed.
This story made me smile a lot, recollecting pets long since past. I have a soft spot for ginger cats
