Some cats have nine lives. Others are happy with one that’s larger than life. Like, Bob, an extraordinary street cat…

Bob “the busking cat” may be small in size, but he’s huge on heart. This orange tabby single-pawedly pulled a man out of a destructive downward spiral, then hooked a literary agent’s eye to seal a bestselling book deal.

Don’t take my word for it. Watch the video … if only to see Bob give his person a high-five.

The Busking Cat that Saved a Life

Bob’s Bestselling Book, in 25 Languages!

A street Cat Named Bob coverA Street Cat Named Bob, And How He Saved My Life is due to be released in the United States in late July 2013.

Here’s the description from Amazon:

James is a street musician struggling to make ends meet. Bob is a stray cat looking for somewhere warm to sleep.

When James and Bob meet, they forge a never-to-be-forgotten friendship that has been charming readers from Thailand to Turkey.

I’ve pre-ordered my copy, but until it’s released in the United States (later this month), I have to rely on input from the following credible reviewers…

The Huffington Post…

A simple, sweet and ridiculously heartwarming story.

And The Guardian (UK)…

A book with the strong ingredients that made Marley and Me and Dewey big successes…A warm and poignant memoir.

The Times (UK)

Move over, Marley. A stray cat from north London could be heading for the lap of luxury as the cinema’s next box office pet sensation.

And The Independent (UK)

A Street Cat Named Bob has sold over 350,000 copies in the UK, and has been published in 25 languages.

Go Bob! Can you teach my cats your secret?
