About the Movie

Based on the international best-selling book, A STREET CAT NAMED BOB is a moving and uplifting feel-good true story. When James Bowen finds an injured ginger street cat curled up in the hallway of his sheltered accommodation, he has no idea just how much his life is about to change. James lives hand to mouth on the streets of London and the last thing he needs is a pet. Yet James can’t resist helping the strikingly intelligent tom cat, whom he quickly christens Bob. He slowly nurses Bob back to health and then sends the cat on his way, imagining he will never see him again. But Bob has other ideas. Soon the two are inseparable and their diverse, comic and occasionally dangerous adventures transform both their lives, slowly healing the scars of each other's troubled pasts.

Great Movie

This is one of the best films I have seen in a while. Seeing the struggle, and what it takes to overcome addiction, was very eye-opening. This is a powerful movie and it changed me.


Loved the angle from Bob's view. The sweet story of a recovering addict shows the temptation, struggles and social stigma. Highly recommend

Beautiful Film ❤
