The book is narrated by the owner of Bob, a homeless person in London named James Bowen. James tried to get out of a drug addiction situation and played on the streets to get money. One day Bowen found an orange cat with a bruised paw, very thin, like someone who had been starving. Bowen named him Bob and decided to take care of him as he could, feeding and caring for him.
At first, Bowen would take care of the cat until he got better and went back to whoever owned it, but the cat decided to stay. Bob remains with Bowen, in all the moments of difficulty and danger that life on the streets imposes, and does not let go. Bowen says that Bob seems to understand him and helps him to live in the present, disconnecting from the past.
Who likes to books about cats will love to read the story of this duo. The book was among the top ten best sellers in Brazil in the nonfiction genre for weeks. The success was so great that the book will gain a sequel, scheduled for the end of this year, with no publication date in Brazil.
