When James Bowen, failed musician and recovering drug addict, finds a injured, orange street cat outside his apartment, he decides to take him in just long enough to get him healthy again. Living hand to mouth on the streets himself, the last thing James needed was another mouth to feed.
Little did he know the cat named Bob had other plans for him. A Street Cat Named Bob is a memoir about how a man and a cat rescue each other. James nurses Bob back to health and Bob helps him recover from drug addiction and turn his life around. Animals are amazing. This was an uplifting and heart warming story. This is a great book, simply written, but emotional. Bob is awesome - this is a cat who is calm, composed, and knows exactly who he wants to be with.
Lucky for James, that person is him. James is living the life of busker - singing on the street for money. With Bob in around, James needs to get his life together, because who else will care for Bob? Its sweet - its sad. Its not a 'woe is me' book.
There is a positive undertones from the beginning to end. And, its an easy read. Is this the best written non-fiction book I've read? Not really, but I did love to read how much love a cat can bring into a persons life. The way James Bowen describes his relationship with Bob, not as just a pet, but as a companion you really trust and care about reminded me of myself and my two cats.
This is a story about one man, his cat, and their continuing friendship In fact, I'm afraid if Hollywood options it for a movie, it would be just horrendously cutesy-wutesy, lacking any substance. The gist is Bowen is a recovering heroin addict earning a meager living as a busker, in the U. Crowd throng to see them, the rare partnership led them to fame. That was not their intention, but it helped them to overcome poverty. The pet lovers would love this film. Despite the original theme is darker with drugs, the film was fun and friendly for almost all ages.
Two Savannah kittens, Scribbles and Pearl are flown over from the U. Once they arrive in their new home adventure, mayhem, and fun begins. Based on the international best selling book. The true feel good story of how James Bowen, a busker and recovering drug addict, had his life transformed when he met a stray ginger cat. I bet this gets terrible reviews from the critics, because it has no ambitions except to tell and embroider a tale of real life itself embroidered a little, OK Anyway I just got home from seeing it, and it is no great work of art If I had a criticism it would say cut the mouse totally irrelevant to the film, but then I'm not a cat.
