Big Issue Magazine
13th July 2020
In this edition of The Big Issue:-
In this week’s issue, James Bowen pays tribute to Street Cat Bob.
“Big Issue vendors recently ventured back on to the streets after more than 100 days of lockdown. This week they will go to work with Bob at their side once more, staring out – for the 11th time – from the cover of the magazine he helped me sell all those years ago outside Angel Tube station,” he said. “It is so fitting that it should be hitting the streets at this particular time.”
Of the hundreds of messages we’ve received about the impact Bob had on his devoted followers, we run some that show he really did have a monumental, unbelievable impact on people’s lives. It’s recommended reading, whether you’re a cat-lover or not. We also have the editor of the Big Issue in Japan about why Bob had so many fans over there, and vendors too talk about how their own pets have helped them through hard times and lockdown.
