A Street Cat Named Bob: And How He Saved My Life

By James Bowen
Non-Fiction, 2nd floor, 636.8009 Bowen 

Struggling street musician James Bowen takes responsibility for an injured ginger tomcat whom he befriends and names Bob. Bob’s sores heal; Bob chooses stays with Bowen, curling up in his guitar case while Bowen busks in Covent Garden.  As their relationship grows, the bond between cat and protector allows Bowen to leave his drug use for good and get on to a life beyond busking. Check out  Youtube for interviews with Bowen and to see Bob in action.
