James has hard a rough life, and he turned to drugs to help cope. Living his life as a street musician. Coming home one night he spots a roughed up cat on a neighbors mat. Thinking nothing of it, really, he goes into his apartment for the night. Only the cat is there the next night, and the next.
James takes the cat around to the neighbors looking for the owner, but finds none. So James take the cat home, feeds him, and cleans a wound he notices the cat has. James takes him to a vet and gets medication that the cat has to take for a few days so the cat gets to stay. Then the cat gets a name, Bob.
James doesn't want to get attached thinking that Bob will want to return to the streets, only Bob doesn't seem to want to. Then Bob starts joining him at work. A few things happen, I don't want to spoil anything, and James realizes that he and Bob are in this together, he is responsible for another life, and he starts to turn his life around.
This is a beautiful true story of a man, and a cat, getting there second chances in life. And James realizes he needs Bob as much as Bob needs him. They are comfort, friends, soul mates, and this us there story.
The book is a tale of redemption for a young fellow who is struggling with his life and keeping his modest flat. He is suddenly gifted with the friendship of a vulnerable stray cat. In helping the wounds of the stray he opens doors that lead him to his own salvation regaining his self of purpose and direction. The authors ability to make us become three musketeers in the story is a pleasure. I learned from the author how painful and scary is to recover from drug addiction and how seemingly easy drugs offer a quick solution to emotional pain and loneliness. The love of Bob teaches us how love and care needs no quick fixes that lead to a dangerous downfall. A great Christmas book with adventure and a magic message.
