Back in 2007, James Bowen, a recovering addict, first discovered Bob, an abandoned and injured cat. Bowen took care of the ginger cat and realized that he had to break his drug addiction to care for Bob. This inspired a best-selling book about his adventures.

Unfortunately, Bob passed away at age 14. Bob literally saved James Bowen’s life by giving him a purpose and helping him reach a life he had never seen before with fame and money.

Hopefully Bob will rest in peace after achieving so much for a little animal. Although James Bowen’s life may never be the same without Bob, hopefully he’ll continue helping the world remember the goodness that was Bob.
