A delightfully cheerful non-fiction picture book about how to care for your cat, from much-loved author Vivian French and award-winning illustrator Salvatore Rubbino.

A non-fiction picture book about a rescue cat, with a charmingly funny story by Vivian French and lively illustrations by Salvatore Rubbino. The story follows a family who have just moved into a mouse-infested flat. Dad is terrified of mice and, after several sleepless nights, decides they should get a cat. They meet Kevin the cat in a rescue home – he's big and strong, and they're sure he'll catch all of the mice.

But Kevin has other ideas… Join this lovable tomcat as he settles into his new home, gradually learning how to use a litter tray, when he'll be fed and that it's probably better to use a scratching post than to shred the back of Dad's chair. The caption text provides information on feeding, grooming and caring for your cat – and at the end of the book, there's a handy index and bibliography.

  • A non-fiction picture book focusing on a very popular animal, with pictures by the illustrator of Our Very Own Dog (winner of an SLA award). 
  • Full of practical advice on cat care for first-time owners. 
  • Heartwarming story by much-loved author Vivian French. In 2018, Viv received Scottish BookTrust's Outstanding Achievement Award.
