When James Bowen found an injured, ginger street cat curled up in the hallway of his sheltered accommodation, he had no idea just how much his life was about to change James was living hand to mouth on the streets of London and the last thing he needed was a pet Yet James couldn't resist helping the strikingly intelligent tom cat, whom he quickly christened Bob He slowly nursed Bob back to health and then sent the cat on his way, imagining he would never see him again But Bob had other ideas Soon the two were inseparable and their diverse, comic and occasionally dangerous adventures would transform both their lives, slowly healing the scars of each other's troubled pasts

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Want another story about a cat wandering into someone's life and becoming part of the community? James Bowen's story fits the bill, and is always engaging. Just know it's not sentimental. Bowen is a former heroin user who once spent as much time on the streets as Bob. His community comprised the busy Londoners who stopped to meet Bob as Bowen busked for change. That said, listeners can track the growing bond between cat and human--and Bowen's life changes--in Christopher Miles's voice. Miles tells the story as he would to a mate, with ease and friendliness. Listeners should give both Bob and Bowen the same chance the pair gave each other. J.A.S. (c) AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine
