A sad day! Bob, the original Streetcat Bob, has left this world and left us all behind. He was at least 14 years old and his owner and human life partner James Bowen must be devastated. So in honor of Bob I am reblogging my original review of the book with the remarkable story of James, a recovering addict and a streetcat named Bob. Do give it read and wish Bob well on his journey onward to the next of his lives.
Why am I, a Horse Addict, writing a book review about a cat book? I don’t even own a cat. I would not describe myself as a “cat person”. So why review this book?
I am reviewing this book in the hope that if you have not already read it you will go out and buy it or order it today. This is not a cute little ‘cat’ story. This is the story of a recovering heroin addict scraping by as a street busker in London’s Covent Garden. His name is James Bowen. He lives in an assisted housing apartment building and one day he comes home to find an injured cat on the doorstep. He can’t afford a cat. He can hardly look after himself let alone an animal. But the cat waits him out and James gives in and they start a remarkable life together.
