James Bowen and Bob, the street cat. Image found on Google search.

“Everybody needs a break, everybody deserves that second chance. Bob and I had taken ours.” – James Bowen

 

Sad news came yesterday that Bob, the famous street cat who befriended the busker James Bowen and helped him get back on his feet and basically saved his life, died on Monday at the age of 14. James Bowen wrote a book about Bob and how the cat changed his life, and that book, “A Street Cat Named Bob”, became an instant hit and spawned 3 more books as well as a movie. Bob will be greatly missed. https://variety.com/2020/film/global/bob-the-cat-dies-dead-james-bowen-1234637774/

  2. Noooooo!! I fell in love with Bob…like so many others…. I have my own ginger cat and can imagine how poor James must feel… and only fourteen! Street life is hard, but I think it is a tribute to Bob’s human that he added so many more years than the average stray lives… May James not stop at one cat. May another Bob find him….
