Their story began dramatically. James was a nomadic musician in London and owned a vulnerable, small, ragged apartment in a dark alley. He found that a cat always lay in front of that old building and thought the cat was as poor and hopeless as him.

Finally sympathy flooded in his heart, he invited the cat to his house and named it
Bob in was a cold and lonely autumn day in 2007. It is exactly the time that James’s life changed significantly. Since then, Bob, the stray cat looking for a warm place to sleep, became the most precious part of James’s life and they lived together as family. James no longer sit and played his guitar on the street alone, he got Bob, the cat which huddled or squinted next to him and even joined in the busking.
