A Street Cat Named Bob

With a longish flight home last night there was time to watch a movie. I had read the book when it came out.  It tells the true life story of James Bowen whose life as a drug addiction changes when he gives up the drugs.  With the help of a kind social worker, he is able to get a council flat and he gets a visit from a ginger tomcat who makes himself at home.

Soon Bob and James are inseparable and become famous with clips of them together watched by millions on YouTube.

I really enjoyed this one, showing that love can come in many forms and from different creatures.   It was also awesome that the real Bob got to play himself in the movie as well as a cameo from the author.   5/5
