On Monday the 14th of June I heard about the passing of an icon and a legend. Street Cat Bob was a life changer for his best friend James Bowen. The world has lost an advocate for ginger cats and strays worldwide, and James lost the soul mate who transformed his life.
When I visited their page on Facebook there are over 65,000 comments on the memorial post. Sixty-Five THOUSAND people felt they needed to speak out about what Bob meant to them.
I did too, and I fight tears as I write now.
Bob and James’ photographs have been seen countless times around the world as James and he toured to promote the books and the number of scarves knitted for Bob must have been enough to fill wardrobes of space.
That makes me smile. How many scarves is enough for a beloved and world-famous cat whose story was translated into countless different languages and who must have changed lives all over the globe?
From our ginger, Jack, thank you James and Street Cat Bob and friend Gary for your wonderful life-affirming books.
