Why does nobody want the mixter-maxter kitten?
The little stripey cat is on a journey. He is sent from the farm to the city and passed from owner to owner. No one seems to love him for just being him.
Once he moves into the tall house in Edinburgh and finds his name -- Mac -- life gets more interesting. He makes friends with two musical ladies next door and discovers he likes Bach... and cat treats. He explores, and has many adventures.
Then, just when he starts to feel settled, unsettling things start to happen. Will he ever find someone to love him for always?
This is a funny, heart-warming story for young readers with lively illustrations.
