A street cat named Bob is coming to QVC


The World According to BobThe feline star of the #1 Sunday Times Bestseller 'A Street Cat Named Bob' and his friend, owner and biographer, James Bowen, will be joining us on QVC this Monday at 9am to share the next chapter of their heart-warming story.

Street musician James Bowen found Bob in 2007 and formed a connection that was to change his life forever, helping him to overcome homelessness and drug addiction. The tale of their friendship became a surprise bestseller last year and now they're back to continue their story.

From bike rides and sunbathing to illness and hardship, 'The World According To Bob' charts the highs and lows of James and Bob's incredibly special friendship.

Make sure you join us on Monday morning at 9am to see James and Bob live on QVC and to get your copy complete with a special book plate signed by the pair!

    That’s fabulous … what a shame I’ll be at work when they are on. i absolutely love this story …. I would highly recommend reading it to everyone. It’s very inspirational and a thought provoking insight into the reasons for people becoming homeless and the issues they face. There are some sad bits but mostly it’s a real ‘feel good’ read. Lots of love to Bob and James … and to QVC for helping to spread the word about this amazing story! x

    Being a volunteer for a homeless charity and a fundraiser for SSPCA a friend gave me A Street Cat named Bob as a gift knowing it would be ideal for me. What a read! As a cat lover (my little one is a rescued cat as indeed all my cats have been) it confirms my belief that animals play a huge part in our lives. Will be glued to QVC on Monday at 9am and plan to buy several copies for family and friends. Best wishes to both James and of course Bob.

    I will definately be watching, I love James and Bob, well I just love cats really, and this story is so heartwarming. The first book made me laugh and made me cry and I told all my friends to go out and buy it. I would love to meet this great duo, perhaps one day I’ll come across them in Covent Garden! Me and my own beloved cat will be tuning in on Monday.

    I have read the first book about bob it was fantastic and also me being a cat. Owner I loved it couldn’t get enough of it can’t wait to read the second book bob is a very special cat and I know his owner James has built a very special bond with bob I have a black cat long haired called Winslow I have had dogs most of my life. But due to health problems couldn’t get another dog. I have had Winslow 6 years now. And the bond that we have together is both unbelievable and at the same time very special just as if we are one I love my cat and he loves me cats are very beautifull and so clever and I have found out that my cat is more loyal to me than any human could be and would say to any one if you live on your own get a cat they are such wonderfully companions I recommend all cat lovers to buy the book it’s so interesting and such a incredible journey between man and. His cat from Patricia
