A homeless musician James Bowen meets homeless red cat Bob changing his life forever. Last year, a book by James “Street Bob cat: a man and a cat in the street have hope.”
One day in the subway James saw a red cat with a wound to the leg, likely resulting in a fight with another cat. It was obvious that the cat needed help. James could not pass and took the cat to the vet. With a little medical treatment and prescription drugs the cat is finally recovered. At that point James found it impossible to say bye to Street Cat Bob. Bob followed James everywhere he went. As James played the guitar on the street and Bob sitting nearby, revenues increased dramatically. People found it difficult to pass when they looked at the cute kitty. James goes on to write a book describing their adventures in the street which was full of life – both dramatic and comedic. In the book James says that could not have imagined how meeting Bob would change his life. Friendship with the cat healed him from a life that had been very hard. Most likely, if Bob could speak, he would say the same thing.
