We do love Streetcat named Bob and he’s got a new book out.
A Gift from Bob by James Bowen
If you’re a fan of Bob the Streetcat, he’s got a new book out for Christmas – From the day James rescued Bob the street cat abandoned in the hallway of his sheltered accommodation, they began a friendship which has transformed both their lives and, through the bestselling books ‘A Street Cat Named Bob’ and ‘The World According to Bob’, touched millions around the world. In this new story from their journey together, James looks back at the last Christmas they spent scraping a living on the streets and how Bob helped him through one of his toughest times – providing strength, friendship and inspiration but also teaching him important lessons about the true meaning of Christmas along the way.
Not too far from Angel in London where Bob and James used to busk, is Shoreditch. On sunny days in the High Street, you’ll find John Dolan and his dog George.
George sits patiently while John draws portraits of him and the buildings opposite. John describes how he turned his life around through the companionship of his best friend in the book.
