I saw this man and his cat on TV a while back. They have an incredible friendship.

phoenix...oh dear! Neither can I. Back to the drawing board. I googled Homeless cat and homeless man. The articlle featured in a recent copy of The Lady. I shall try again. hmm

Here goes...if this fails, I shall have to shout for help!

soop Tue 30-Oct-12 11:21:22

And that doesn't work either. Now I'm getting tetchy. confused

I typed Homeless Cat and Homeless Cat Hit the Big Time and I found the you-tube video straight away. I'm not too clever with computers.

Perhaps it will be third time lucky...wink

Thanks for your perseverance Soop that was well worth the seeing! Seems to me that the cat saved the man rather than the other way round. smile

soop Tue 30-Oct-12 11:49:23

Granny23 Exactly! Those are my feelings too. When I first read the article in The Lady, it lifted my spirits sky-high. grin

Oh soop that's lovely! I also watched the clip where they were on breakfast TV. What a handsome cat!

phoenix This story, no matter how I often I read it, has me wreathed in smiles.

I read this book a couple of weeks ago, it`s such a lovely little story. But the main reason I had for buying the book was the picture on the front, Bob is the absolute spitting image of our beautiful, dear, departed Pepper. A lovely book though, and I highly recommend it.

number YES! Bob and Pepper could be brothers. Have taken long look at Mia's photos, especially the one with her wee toy. The arty-farty wotsit will kick in any day now. grin

Soop, grin

Bob reminds me of my beloved Percy, who left us in 2002, aged 16. He was my third ginger cat. That's a very moving story - they saved each other.

Thanks for that Soop what a lovely wee tale, it brought a smile to my face.
