A buskers life changed by a cat named Bob.

Posted on May 7, 2012


James Bowen, a once homeless recovering heroin addict, met Bob the ginger cat during a very dark period, and credits the feline with giving him a purpose in life.

It has been Bob, who over the past five years, has helped give James the strength to stay off drugs, driven him to earn money and get his life back on track.

In his new book A Street Cat Named Bob, James describes how the pair go everywhere with each other and can even be seen busking in London together!

Check out his story A buskers life changed by a cat named Bob.
