Tributes Are Pouring Following The Death Of Street Cat Bob At The Age Of 14

The cat who inspired James Bowen's bestselling book and film A Street Cat Named Bob, has died at the age of 14.

James, a recovering addict, first met Bob in 2007 when he found him abandoned and injured. James took care of Bob who in turn gave him a reason to get up each morning. They quickly became inseparable, busking and selling The Big Issue on the streets of London.

In 2012 Hodder and Stoughton published Bowen's first book recounting their adventures – A Street Cat named Bob. The bestseller was followed by sequels: The World According to Bob, A Gift from Bob and The Little Book of Bob. They went on to sell more than eight million copies and were translated into 40 languages. Bob made it to the silver screen, starring as himself, in a 2016 film of the original book and will reprise his role in A Gift from Bob to be released later this year.

Hodder & Stoughton, who published the bestseller in 2012, confirmed the feline's death in a heartfelt statement.

James Bowen said yesterday: "There's never been a cat like him" – and we couldn't agree more.

RIP, dear Bob.

Tribute To The Legendary Grumpy Cat And Lil Bub

2019 was a tough year for the cat lover community. It was in this one year that we lost two of largest cat legends that the world has ever known:

Tardar Sauce (Grumpy Cat) and Lillian Bubbles (Lil BUB). 

This is a tribute to them and their legacy. 

May they rest in peace. We'll miss you forever.

In the very words of Lil Bub's owners, "On the morning of Sunday, December 1st 2019 we lost the purest, kindest and most magical living force on our planet. BUB was cheerful and full of love laying in our bed with us Saturday night, but unexpectedly passed away peacefully in her sleep.. I have always been fully transparent about BUB's health, and it was no secret that she was battling a persistent and aggressive bone infection. Even knowing this, we weren't expecting her to pass so soon or so abruptly without warning. I truly believe that she willingly made the decision to leave her failing body so that our family would not have to make that difficult decision ourselves. 

It is impossible to put into words the profound effect that BUB has had on my life, on the lives of thousands of homeless pets, and on the lives of those of you that have cared for her as if she were your own family. She taught me everything that I know about unconditional love, she brought my wife Stacy and I together, she's the reason we have our beautiful children Rosco and Lula, and she has been a constant source of warmth and love in our lives for the past 8 years. To say that our family is devastated would be an understatement. 

But most importantly, BUB has made a huge difference in the world of animal welfare, and in the lives of millions of people worldwide. She has literally saved thousands of lives (both pets and humans), she started the first national fund for special needs pets, she was the subject of groundbreaking genetic and biological research, she's helped raise over $700,000 for animals in need, and has spread a message of determination, positivity, and perseverance to people all over the world. And even though my heart is absolutely crushed by her graceful departure from planet Earth, I know that her sprit, magic, and overwhelming energy are still with us, reminding us every day to be better. 

Dearest BUB, I will never forget your generosity, your limitless supply of love, or your uncanny ability to bring so much magic and joy to the world. I am forever honored and humbled that you chose me as your caretaker. Please visit all of us in our dreams often. GOOD JOB BUB."

We love you, Lil Bub.
