The third book in a delightful series chronicling the many joys and occasional scratch marks of living with cats.
'A colourful series that celebrates the many ways animals enrich our relationships and our lives' Karin Slaughter
Marilyn and husband Michael have known many happy years at Moon Cottage, with their cats Fannie, Titus and Pushkin. However, the time has come to make a dream come true, and for the family to move to beautiful Cumbria.
However, as all cat-lovers will know, the feline companions in our lives do not always share our dreams, and getting Fannie, Titus and Pushkin on board with the change will be its very own challenge. . .
Capturing the highs and the lows which come with living with cats, The Moon Cottage cat series is a testimony and a tribute to that unique and rewarding relationship which exists between humans and their feline companions in which cats, in their splendid complexity, remain among us, but not of us.
**Fully illustrated throughout**
