I still need help in the right direction. Bob is always there to offer guidance and friendship.' (James, on Bob)'Close proximity to animals does wonders for your mental health. Close proximity to this book will do wonders for it, too.' (Daily Mail)James and his street cat Bob have been on a remarkable journey together.
