    I got the book here and the Dewey one, but got too busy and forgot to read them again, really need to start reading them again.

    Both are interesting reads and you should try Chrystal Sharpe's books too (they are old and she has 3 books)

    She is also called Chrystal Hartley

    The Streetcat named Bob was only out this year so written last year I think, I know the Dewey one was quite old, I think it was written in the 90s, as a lot of it took place in the 80s

    Dewey was first published in the UK in 2009 so not that old and Street Cat named Bob was first published this year.
    Another good read is..."Travelling Cat" *a journey round britain with Pugwash * by Fredrick Harrison....This on is quite old

    I often see him around Covent Garden.... It really is too amazing the way Bob is so relaxed and completely unconcerned about all the commotion going on around him, couldn't quite believe what I was seeing on first sighting a few years back.... Must get the book and give it a read!

    The story of Street Cat named Bob is intriguing, especially as it is a true story, but unfortunately the book is not very well written, so my copy got recycled to Oxfam after I'd read the first chapter.:)
