Meet Bob The Angel Tube Cat At Islington Waterstones Tonight

Remember the news that Bob, the Angel tube cat, famous for hanging out with Big Issue seller James Bowen by Angel tube, on the 73 bus and generally anywhere Bowen goes, had a book deal? (Though presumably Bowen did the typing and kept up the supply of Dreamies.)

That book is about to come out – and Bob and James are doing a pawing/signing of early release copies at Islington Waterstones tonight from 6pm. To tide you over until then, here's a wee video about the pair.

I shall be there, but I hope there are enough books for everyone. I telephoned the branch and was told that there'd been a lot of interest in the signing!


I wish I could be there. 
I totally understand why he has him on a leash, he's in a busy city and he could easy get spooked a run out in front of a car. A cat would not sit on your shoulder like that if he didn't want to be there. he looks happy and well fed.
This is an excellent story, I hope they sell lots of books.


 I too wish I could be there, alas work commitments :(

Just purchased from Amazon, can't wait to read, I imagine it'll be a wonderful story and looking forward to seeing them both as I often do on a morning.

Hope the night is a pawing success!


Woderful story,enjoyed watching him this morning on the show,This Morning
