Meeting the Street Cat Named Bob
While I was wandering around Covent Garden I came across Bob, the Big Issue Cat. He looked like a smaller version of my cat Elliot, but much friendlier. Bob has caught the imagination of the public and there is now going to be a book about him.
Bob is now a big London celebrity with lots of media coverage and Youtube videos about him. He is so friendly and doesn’t mind lots of strangers stroking him. You can find them either at Angel station or somewhere around Covent Garden.
Bob is a very speical cat. He is so well know around Angle tube station that he even has his own Oyster card. He’s the first cat to get one!
Update: The Book is out Now:A Street Cat Named Bob By James Bowen
This book is the story of how James met Bob and how Bob the Big Issue Cat saved his life. It’s a really heartwarming story of how one man’s life was turned around after finding and saving this stray cat. You can’t help be moved by how James’ life was changed when he met this amazing cat.
Edit 2: Feb 14 2013 –Bob: No Ordinary Cat and this one is written for the children aged 11 and above.It retells the story of the Amazing Bob, the cat who saved James’ life. Really charming.
