A STREET CAT NAMED BOB is a drama about a busker and recovering drug addict whose life is transformed when he adopts a stray ginger cat.

Drugs

There are several verbal and visual references to drugs and drug misuse. In one scene, an unsuccessful attempt is made to revive a man who has overdosed on heroin; a syringe is seen lying next to him on the ground. In another scene, a man goes through 'cold turkey' as he comes off methadone. The film consistently stresses the dangers of drug misuse.

Other issues include mild injury detail, mild threat, and mild bad language - including uses of 'bloody', 'bullshit', 'dickhead', 'piss off', 'screw yourself' and 'shit'.
