Published by Hodder & Stoughton, the blurb talks about how James found Bob when he was injured "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."
How absolutely brilliant is that?
To celebrate James got Bob to pose for me and he looks remarkably like Long Cat in the shot above.
Update: 6th August 2011: The Independent also reported this story and said "London Transport, meanwhile, has presented Bob with his very own special Oyster card in recognition of his popularity at the Angel station." Yay for Bob!
