A Street Cat Named Bob is a 2016 British comedy drama which is based on the book of the same name by James Bowen.

James Bowen (Luke Treadaway) is a homeless and a recovering drug addict who is running low on his luck. He’s given a last chance to turn his life around by his support worker, who helps him to find his own flat to live in. As James attempts to build a life and future for himself by busking in Covent Garden, he struggles to survive as the London crowd passes him by. Whilst in the bath one day, he hears a break-in and finds a ginger cat (Bob) in his kitchen eating the corn flakes. Thinking it belongs to a neighbour, he sets out to find the owner but with no luck concluding that it must be a stray. Over the next few days, the cat continues to linger on the estate, and James discovers an infected wound on the animal’s leg. He takes the cat to be treated by a charity vet and from that point onwards, the two lives become entwined.

It's a heart-warming story for all the family about one man and his cat, and the power our furry friends have to love, heal and protect their humans. And Bob's starring role performing as himself is simply wonderful.
