A Street Cat Named Bob '[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.

  • Would be better if the author wasn't a judgemental twit

    By Simma79
    I have found the author of this book extremely judgemental, which for me ruined the story. I don't usually leave reviews of any sort, good or bad but after reading how this man talks about others in a stereotypical, judgemental and demeaning way I really had to stop reading. After seeing this book advertised I was really looking forward to reading this, I love a story about animals and a rags to riches tale but the final straw that stopped me carrying on reading this was when he wrote all staffy owners are arseholes. I don't need to read someone's horrid outlook about others, I also find his woe is me attitude annoying. This story would of been a much better, enjoyable read if it wasn't for these two facts.

    I loved this read! Not only because of James and Bobs relationship but of the truth of the daily struggles and triumphs on the streets of London, so honest and true! I hope one day to have the pleasure of meeting them when I'm next in London! A very easy 5 star read! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • A wonderful, heart warming amazing story!

    By Laumandu
    I've loved reading this book and it has really made me smile (which is hard at the moment). It's a story of harsh reality on the streets of London,but mixed with hope and love as James discovers he has a friend in his darkest hours. It's witty and hard to not read the whole thing at once but I wanted to read a bit at a time to savour it (which is not like me as I'm not a big reader) as it was such a lovely read. Bob is the most cool Cat and a real character and cat lovers will love this book even more. I used to have a cat called Bob too :-) Excellent book, highly recommend!

    First non technical book I have read in all of forty years. I mainly only read technical and mechanical books and technical reviews on things. I picked this book and amazed myself by reading it from cover to cover. A nice light easy read, relaxing and I was drawn into it. Perhaps it's the one to turn me into a "Bookworm" after all we all need to relax a bit and take stock of things as James did!
