'Since Bob has appeared, I've made huge strides in my life. For more than a decade I was a homeless drug addict. I was lost to the world and had forgotten what was important in life. Now I've got myself back on my two feet, but as I put the past behind me, I'm still stepping unsteadily into the future. I still need help in the right direction. Bob is always there to offer guidance and friendship.'


James and his street cat Bob have been on a remarkable journey together. In the years since their story ended in the bestselling A STREET CAT NAMED BOB James, with Bob's help, has begun to find his way back to the real world.

Almost every day, Bob provides moments of intelligence, bravery and humour, at the same time opening his human friend's eyes to important truths about friendship, loyalty, trust - and the meaning of happiness.

In the continuing tale of their life together James shows the many ways in which Bob has been his protector and guardian angel through times of illness, hardship, even life-threatening danger.

As they high five together for their crowds of admirers, James knows that the tricks he's taught Bob are nothing compared to the lessons he's learnt from his street-wise cat.

Interesting at many levels, the human animal bond, street life and the good and bad in human behaviour, struggles with addiction. An easy read, a real pleasure.

Writing style is pretty bad in my opinion, but the story is engaging.

Bob the cat has given his human companion James a totally new lease on life, appreciation for the power of love, and an increased interest in how he can reach out to others, with Bob as the inspiration. James has come such a long way in his journey, since the first book he wrote about his life with Bob, and it was a joy to read about how so many others have come to know and love his cat Bob

The second installment about a man and his cat. Simply written, James Bowen gives us more stories and lessons he learned from his cat Bob.

More importantly, he gives us insight into what it's like to be homeless.

He says, "People don't understand that the lack of self-esteem and general hopelessness you feel when you are homeless.."

A wonderful tale about faith, hope, and love.

Not quite as gripping as the first book, this is still a lovely sequel that will warm your heart while answering the question, "What happened next?" I hope further adventures of James and Bob are forthcoming.

This book is as good as the first one. Such a heartwarming story!

This book shows the amazing benefit of owning a pet in a real life situation.

This is another sweet and touching book by James Bowen about his experiences with Bob. I loved both of his honest and inspirational books. Bob is awesome and this highlights the real benefits of animal therapy.

loved this book, James is honest about the bad decisions and choices he has made in his life and credits Bob with giving him the strength and courage to turn his life around. There is talk of a possible movie deal and I would definitely go see it. This a really inspirational read and going to YouTube to watch the interviews mentioned is really fun.

More about James and Bob, their relationship and life. James has some health issues which make him question the wisdom of keeping Bob, but in the end he realizes that Bob is able to decide who he wants to be with and that is James. Goes into some of the details about getting the first book written and published. I hope they have continued good health and many more adventures to tell us about......
