Heartwarming True Story for Animal Lovers
The holiday season is the perfect time for a heartwarming Christmas movie starring a cat, so be sure to watch A Gift from Bob.
Dogs and dog movies are great, but as a cat mom of two I am thrilled that we get to watch a cat-centric holiday movie this year.
Bob is an adorable cat and does an amazing job acting in this film that is based on his true story.
The film is based on the book A Gift from Bob: How a Street Cat Helped One Man Learn the Meaning of Christmas by James Bowen.
This film is not rated, but is a good choice for families this holiday season.
If you are someone who cries during Hallmark or Lifetime type movies like I do, you may shed a tear during this touching movie.
Then you’ll be uplifted by the warm and wonderful spirit of Christmas and the positive messaging of the story.
The DVD will be fun to watch for a family movie night as you celebrate the season.
And, it just may end up becoming part of your annual holiday movie routine.
A Gift From Bob
Release Date 11/9/21
Christmas gifts come in all shapes and sizes.
For James, a struggling street musician, a very special one arrives in the form of Bob, a strong-willed stray cat who wanders into James’s tiny flat.
Bob enriches James’s life, giving him companionship, purpose, and a large, new audience.
When Animal Welfare officers threaten to take Bob, the local community rallies to help James and Bob — sparking a journey that takes the pair to places they never imagined in this heartwarming, spirit-lifting movie for the whole family.
Charles Martin Smith
Based on the Books A Gift From Bob and The Little Book of Bob by James Bowen
