    Street Cat Named Bob

    Hi everyone...
    I've just finished reading the most delightful and heart warming book called "A Street Cat Named Bob" I know there are a lot of kitty lovers here and if you haven't read the book, its well worth the read. It's a story about a young man living on the streets of London and how he and this ginger tom found each other and how their lives changed for the better. I loved it.

    Here's a video clip about Bob...there's lots on YouTube

    Found it on Amazon. In US, we won't get it until the end of July, but I have a feeling that it is worth the wait. Thanks for sharing.
    Since I gain weight reading cookbooks, why can't I lose weight watching a fitness program?

    Im reading a 6 book series called Warriors. Its about 4 clans of cats and their adventures. Very well written.
    There is a book from the UK that is called Abandoned that is about a boy who turns into a cat, also very good.

    I just borrowed a book from the library called "The Cat Who REturned at Christmas" or something like that. It's a true story about a single mom who had a 9-year old autistic son. One day a cat appeared in their garden, this cat was extremely malnorished and looked awful. She set out food in the shed as well as a cat carrier, hoping that she would be able to catch the cat and eventullay bring it to the vet. The cat kept coming around and eventually she was able to get the into the carrier and took it to the vet, where she left it. In the meanwhile, she put posters up about teh cat.
    Tehvet called her one day and asked if she wouldn't adopt the cat and give it a home. She went to the vet and was going to say that she really couldn't keep the cat, but an amazing thing happened: her son had bonded with the cat while she while the women was trying to get the cat into the carrier. The cat had also bonded with the little boy. When they saw each other at the vet's there was recognition and the little boy started talking and getting all excited.
    Of course, she took the cat home and the two grew really clsoe. One day, the cat disappeared and the little boy was heart broken. Months went by and the boy felt worse and worse. Just before Christmas the cat came back.

    I just started this book, but it looks like a good read and it is a true story abotu how a little cat came into the life of this little boy and brought about a lot of changes.

    Loved that cat story- will look for the book at my library. In 2002, our cat Beethoven came to us in great need of attention, running around the back yard with "the runs", searching thru our compost pile frantically seeking food - and out of luck, since we are vegetarian. We caught him with the help of a neighbor and cleaned him up and he was with us until last Jan. when he passed. He absolutely bonded with my husband, and they were so incredibly close. I've never seen the like of it. We miss him so much!
    KEEP CALM and CARRY ON!!

    May I recommend Dewey the Library Cat. Can't remember the author, but will always remember the cat!
