Popular Quotes

“Everybody needs a break, everybody deserves that second chance. Bob and I had taken ours.”
― James Bowen, A Street Cat Named Bob: How One Man and His Cat Found Hope on the Streets

 “I don’t know why, but people seem to be fascinated to learn how some members of society fall through the cracks. I think it’s partly that feeling that… it could happen to anyone. But I think it also makes people feel better about their own lives. It makes them think, ‘Well, I may think my life is bad, but it could be worse, I could be that poor sod.”
― James Bowen, A Street Cat Named Bob: And How He Saved My Life

“Cat saliva contains a natural deodorant which is why they lick themselves a lot. It’s been proven by zoologists that cats that lick the smell off themselves survive longer and have more successful offspring. It’s also their way of hiding themselves from predators like large snakes, lizards and other larger carnivorous mammals.”
― James Bowen, A Street Cat Named Bob: And How He Saved My Life

 “Having Bob gave me a chance to interact with people…. Cats are notoriously picky about who they like. Seeing me with my cat softened me in [others] eyes. It humanized me. Especially after I’d been so dehumanized. In some ways it was giving me back my identity. I had been a non-person; I was becoming a person again.”
― James Bowen, A Street Cat Named Bob: How One Man and His Cat Found Hope on the Streets

 “Living on the streets of London strips away your dignity, your identity − your everything, really. Worst of all, it strips away people’s opinion of you. They see you are living on the streets and treat you as a non-person. They don’t want anything to do with you. Soon you haven’t got a real friend in the world.”
― James Bowen, A Street Cat Named Bob: And How He Saved My Life

 “I tried to sneak in without him seeing me. It was a stupid move. He was a cat, he had more senses in one of his whiskers than I had in my entire body. No sooner had I opened the door to the building than he was there squeezing his way in.”
― James Bowen, A Street Cat Named Bob: And How He Saved My Life

“There’s a famous quote I read somewhere. It says we are all given second chances every day of our lives. They are there for the taking, it’s just that we don’t usually take them.”
― James Bowen, A Street Cat Named Bob: How One Man and His Cat Found Hope on the Streets

― James Bowen, The World According to Bob: The Further Adventures of One Man and His Street-Wise Cat

“Cats are notoriously picky about who they like. And if a cat doesn’t like its owner it will go and find another one. Cats do that all the time.”
― James Bowen, A Street Cat Named Bob: And How He Saved My Life

“Everybody needs a break, everybody deserves that second chance. Bob and I had taken ours…”

One Final Bonus – James Bowen Quote 

“People don’t want to listen. All they see is someone they think is trying to get a free ride. They don’t understand I’m working, I’m not begging. I was actually trying to make a living. Just because I wasn’t wearing a suit and a tie and carrying a briefcase or a computer, just because I didn’t have a payslip and a P45, it didn’t mean that I was freeloading.”
