Feline Great!

Well, I bet James Bowen and his loyal ginger cat companion Bob are indeed “feline great” today as the fundraising campaign to assist the opening of Bob’s World Cat Café not only reached but exceeded its target.

The campaign reached its target of £125, 000 some days ago and closed this morning having totalled over £148,000 donated by cat lovers and James and Bob’s fans from all over the world.

10410987_849176535154161_9047470202994067003_nPeople wanting to support the scheme were given the choice of different “perks” including books, posters and mugs as well as visits to the café. Bob the suave wearer of very natty neckwear was even persuaded to donate a few of his “fan made” scarves to be put up for auction to help raise the funds required!

This is good news for London cat lovers as the café will not only provide a place for a coffee accompanied by cats, but it will also host seminars on animal care, veterinary advice and help with rehoming abused and stray cats.

The campaign hasn’t ended yet and there is still time if you wish to donate towards the costs of the café. See fundraising page at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/bob-s-world-cat-cafe-fundraiser

It is now down to James and Bob and their team to secure a suitable property and to complete all the necessary administration to get the café up and running hopefully later this year…

In the meantime a big high five from Bob!

    Well done Bob and James – just please don’t ask me to visit the cafe! Sure it will do a lot of good though

    I love Bob the cat. He looks so cool (and surprisingly happy) in his little scarf.

    High fives all round for his new cafe!

    Bob is a truly exceptional cat. I hope this project goes well.
    I wonder if the bob and James team would put their weight behind a campaign to encourage landlords to let tenants and leaseholders keep pets. With so many people having to move home often, pets are collateral damage. Rehoming centres are full and the pest end up abandoned on the street.
