A Street Cat Named Bob: And How He Saved My Life by James Bowen

Reviewed by Jayne S (Library Staff)

This is a heartwarming memoir that was an international bestseller a few years ago.

The author was a street musician barely surviving on the streets of London when he takes in a stray yellow tomcat. James is on methadone, trying to kick his heroin addiction. When he starts bringing Bob along, the money increases. Everyone loves Bob!

But Bob does more than that – he gives James someone to love and care for, talk to and forces him to pursue a clean, sober life.

I loved this, its another book that illustrates the bond of humans and the animals we love. This book is great reading from young teens to seniors.
