Cats are notoriously independent. We often see videos of people wanting to snuggle their furry babies and them wanting nothing to do with it. It’s a fact, cats have their own mind. This is why we feel so blessed when they decide to love us and give us affection.
Why would a street cat decide to bond with an addict?
James Bowen is a drug addict. He has tried to get clean before but being homeless doesn’t help and having no support system in place is definitely an obstacle. As a last attempt and after a life-threatening incident, his support worker finally decides to get him a flat and prescribes Methadone to help with his recovery.
Barely making ends meet, busking the streets of London, James struggles until one day he meets a stray ginger cat he names Bob. Bob is special. He refuses to stay home and would rather stay on James’ shoulders. They quickly become a phenomenon.
Bob is a true actor.
The ginger cat in this movie (Bob) is purrr-fect and he is definitely the star but there are other very important issues raised as well. Addiction and the realities of street-life is not something often talked about. A street cat named Bob, brings about these issues in a heartwarming way. It is not confronting, it is simply realistic and honest.
I believe that even if you are not a fan of cats, you will love this movie. I mean, Bob adopted a human and saved his life. That’s really something to see.
