This series is based on the adventures, or misadventures as some will find, of the Caton’s Russian Blue cat. He was a very active cat with a lot of character. He would roam around the yard and eventually found himself in various situations. It was fun to watch as he tried to decide just how he was going to find a way out. This adventure was especially funny as you will find out when you read what happens. And, it actually did happen! Cristine used these situations as the basis of her stories and added conversations to make it more interesting for the little ones.
