THE RETURN OF THE KILLER CAT

The cover of '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 and the family to go away on holiday. A week of freedom lies ahead - if only he can get away from the catsitter. But everything goes wrong when Tufty is catapulted into the arms of horrid, sweet-as-pie, Melanie.

Melanie has always longed for a lovely, cuddly ickle pussykins. And with the promise of cream, fresh fish and escape from the catsitter, Tufty loses all his dignity. Dressed up in baby-clothes and pampered like a pussycat, has the killer cat really gone for good?
