Cat was knitted by Mum out of the softest, fluffiest wool, and wrapped in shiny paper and a big, pink ribbon... but why was he made? When you are brand new, the world is full of questions, and if you are brave it can be full of answers too. Cat asks the wind, the stars and the trees for help, but it is only when he discovers love that he also finds his purpose.
