He named the cat is Bob and decided to take care of Bob himself until Bob back to health. He spent lots of money bringing Bob to the vet so he could recover. After that, he sent the cat on his way to find a better home, but Bob kept coming back to him. At that moment, Jame knew that they are inseparable.

James even starved himself to make sure his friend was fed and had medicine. Bob soon accompanied James when busking in the streets of London, and they became famous. People crowded around James and Bob, asking for photos.
