Bobcat and I, A Documentary About Bob the Cat Who Changed a London Street Musician’s Life

Bobcat and I is a short documentary film about Bob, a cat that started following street musician James Bowen around the streets of London and changed his life for the better. James has since authored A Street Cat Named Bob: How One Man and His Cat Found Hope on the Streets which is available for pre-order.

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. A Street Cat Named Bob is a moving and uplifting story that will touch the heart of anyone who reads it.
