Sometimes, fate brings people together and James was in desperate need of someone to help him overcome the life he was living. A recovering heroin addict, James was an outsider, having spent years on the street he knew he needed something to change and when Val comes to his aid and finds him a place to stay, he begins his road to recovery.

James is determined to start his life again. When he hears rustling coming from the kitchen, James expects to find a burglar but he finds a little ginger cat raiding a box of cereal. Unable to find his owner, James semi-adopts the little cat and they automatically bond and he names him Bob. Travelling to the other side of London to busk to tourists in Covent Garden Bob follows James on his daily commute by jumping on the bus. 

Now inseparable, James and Bob both used one another as support systems. James Begins selling The Big Issue and really begins to get his life back on track, not entirely but significantly down to a little four legged friend.
