The story of the street cat called Bob that befriended and turned around homeless busker, James Bowen's life is now out in the cinema (UK - USA November 18th)
This is the incredible story of how James found Bob whilst at a hostel on a neighbour's step, discovering that the cat needed surgery and paying for the surgery out of the money from his busking, after which the two develop an incredible bond. Bob follows James wherever he goes, and sits on his guitar whilst James busks!
By 2010 the story of Bob and James was already in print, and in 2013 had been published as a children's book "Bob: No Ordinary Cat". And now in 2016 Bob and James are on the silver screen (12A)!
And who plays Bob, well, casting other cats to play the role of Bob was tried, but only one cat could play Bob, following the actor who plays James, Luke Treadaway, and getting on buses and busking, and that was Bob himself!
James now works, with Bob, for charities related to homelessness, animal welfare and literacy.
