I’m a big fan of James Bowen and Bob, and have been following the pair’s remarkable story for the past seven years. I interviewed James twice (read my interviews here and here.) I’m looking forward to his newest book, The Little Book of Bob: Life Lessons from a Streetwise Cat, which comes out in October. And I was delighted when the Daily Mail broke the story of James’ engagement to a woman who is owned by a tortie!

Madame Pompadour, who goes by Pom Pom, belongs to James’ fiancée Monika. The pair live together in Bowen’s Surrey home, and according to the Daily Mail, Bob welcomed Pom Pom with open paws. “They took their time to get to know each other,” Monika told the Daily Mail, “…but soon they were playing and running around the house and curling up together to sleep. They really love each other.”

Read the full story of how James and Bob found love, along with wonderful photos, in the Daily Mail.
