lovely, heartwarming, inspirational, entertaining, I love, love, love this book.kareng

This was a wonderful, unexpected great read. Not being a cat person, I thought it might not appeal to me. But the inside jacket enticed me to do it.

James Brown writes from a heart-felt place, and gives the reader insight to living on the street of London.

It is amazing how the story unfolds about his first meeting Bob and how their relationship transforms both their lives, and those who come in contact with James (the cat man), and Bob.

If I was to ever have a cat, it would be one like Bob. He is one-in-a-million.

James also has online sites to visit and keep up with him and Bob.

Enjoy your read!

Thought I'd love the story of Dewey, the library cat, but ended up somewhat disappointed (not nearly enough about Dewey as about his owner....). THIS book, however, is not a disappointment at all! The book really is ALL about Bob! As a cat lover, I am always on the look out for stories about cat rescues and this one is one of the great one! Terrific summer read.

well written, honest description of life as a recovering drug addict and the bond that develops between a man and the cat that gives him a reason to take responsibility for his life choices. A really good read. Looking forward to reading the continuing story.

This is a great easy read about two fellas finding and caring for each other. The story is being adapted for children in a book called (I believe) 'No Ordinary Cat'. Bob the Big Issue cat (you can see him on YouTube) just brought a huge smile to my face...and still does. This is a heartwarming story that any cat lover can appreciate.

An easy, quick read.
Lovely story about how a down and out cat helped change the life of a struggling young man. They turned both their lives around.

I absolutely loved this book. I love a good underdog story and I have always believed in the healing aspects of animals. Bob sounds like an exceptional cat and his owner, equally so.

A heartwarming, honest and straight-forward story, but very disappointed this book contains no photographs (except on the cover).
