In 2007, James Bowen, a recovering heroin addict, found an injured cat curled up on a step when he himself was living in sheltered accommodation. The two became inseparable and Bob and James very literally saved each other. A few years later James wrote his first book about his unique relationship with Bob, A Street Cat Named Bob, which has now gone on to be an international best-seller, selling over 3 million copies and be translated into 35 languages.
Bob features as the cover star of this unique edition of The Big Issue. James has hand signed this very special copy and with Bob’s signature paw print this is an absolute must have for any true Bobite which you can get your paws on by clicking here.
All the proceeds from this sale will go to The Big Issue Foundation to support the vital work that we do with Big Issue vendors just like James in their journey out of homelessness.
