HERE'S a movie I'm looking forward to seeing. I've read the book A Street Cat Named Bob: And How He Saved My Life and now it's been made into a film.
For those of you who don't know the story, London street musician James Bowen found an injured, ginger street cat curled up in the hallway of his sheltered accommodation. He had no idea just how much his life was about to change. James was living hand to mouth on the streets of London and the last thing he needed was a pet.
Yet James, a recovering heroin addict, couldn't resist helping the strikingly intelligent tom cat, whom he quickly christened Bob. He slowly nursed Bob back to health and then sent the cat on his way, imagining he would never see him again. But Bob had other ideas.
Soon the two were inseparable and their diverse, comic and occasionally dangerous adventures would transform both their lives, slowly healing the scars of each other's troubled pasts.
A Street Cat Named Bob: And How He Saved My Life is a moving and uplifting story that touched the heart of anyone who read it.
The movie of the book is to be released later this year. It stars acclaimed British actors Luke Treadaway as James, Ruta Gedmintas as Belle, Joanne Froggatt and Anthony Head (Rupert Giles in Buffy the Vampire Slayer).
