James Bowen: drug addiction and how a cat saved my life

 Ireland's Big Issue 09 September 2019

James Bowen has gone from homelessness and drug addiction to becoming a successful author and well-loved personality, all thanks to a stray ginger cat called Bob. His first book, ‘A Street Cat Named Bob’, which candidly tells of his drug addiction and mental health issues, describes how he found Bob and how looking after the cat helped his recovery. James spoke to Ireland’s Big Issue about life as an author and the stray moggy who saved his life. (1292 Words) - By Samantha Bailie
