The Return of the Killer Cat

“Okay, okay. So slap my teensy little paws. I messed up – big time.”

Tuffy can’t wait for Ellie’s family to go away on holiday. A week of freedom lies ahead – if only he can escape the catsitter. But things go terribly wrong when Tuffy is catapulted into the arms of sweet-as-pie neighbour Melanie, who has always longed for a cuddly ickle pussykins. Dressed up in baby clothes, drinking cream and pampered like a pussycat, Tuffy soon loses all his dignity. Has our cruel Killer Cat really gone for good? Or can he use his killer instincts to strike back?

    The killer cat is overjoyed to hear that his family are going away for a week. But the person chosen to catsit him is reverend barnham! Will he survive the lumpy, two day old catfood he’s fed! I would recommend these books to 6-10 year olds
