'We are all given second chances every day of our lives, but we don't usually take them. Then I met Bob.'

James Bowen was a homeless musician, busking on the streets of London to survive. But the moment he met an injured stray cat with ginger fur and big green eyes, his life began to change. Together James and Bob the cat faced the world - and won.

A purrfectly true 'tail' of love and friendship to make you smile!

5.0 out of 5 stars Abridged version 14 Feb 2013
By Radiojock TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had ordered this, thinking it was an update on Bob and James, but it's a shorter version of A STREETCAT CALLED BOB. James and Bob found each other when they were both going through some tough times in their lives. This book ends with some lovely photos of them both. It has been a privilege to read their story.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sensitively written book 31 Mar 2013
By MaryT
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was written for a younger reader but this, in no way way, detracts from the original story. Every child should read this before they reach the age where they may be influenced by such peer pressures as taking drugs. Yes, the cat side of the story is uplifting and, often, amusing but the message about the downturn someones life can take if taking drugs is very clear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant abridgement 20 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A very well crafted abridgement of 'A Street Cat Named Bob' by James Bowen written for 11 year olds up. Not clunky or disjointed as some abridged versions can be. Deals well with drug addiction, neither glamorises nor alarms. Language very accessible yet does not patronise, honest but heart warming. As with the original this story is not really about a cat but rather about relationships and life. Can't think of anything else quite like it on the market. As a school Librarian I know I will be able to get some students reading or reading again by introducing them to 'Bob No Ordinary Cat'.
