A Street Cat Named Bob - RIP

Passed away aged 14. But what a legacy he's left behind.

There's a similar story about a cat in Olten, named Toulouse. They dubbed him "The King of Olten" and Alex Capus even wrote a book about him. After his passing, the city errected a small statue in his honor.

What a touching story. Thanks for the links.

Wonder if he was named after Toulouse-Lautrec...

You're very welcome. Capus does an excellent job depicting the town, the cat and the overall mood of its inhabitants.
