Survival at sea for Scratch, the disobedient kitten who runs away to sea despite his mother’s strict instructions not too! Scratch’s troubles are wittily recounted in this easy to read story about the making of a ship’s cat.

Synopsis

Scratch Kitten Goes to Sea by Jessica Green

Tired of life on the docks, Scratch Kitten runs away to sea, keen to make a name for himself as a brave ship’s cat. But once Scratch has stowed away on the Silk’n’Spice, a sailing ship bound for the South Seas, he discovers that life on the ocean waves is harder than he thought. Scratch quickly learns he must earn his keep to avoid being thrown overboard, and he thinks the best way to do this is to befriend the ship’s cook, Pegleg. The only problem is that Pegleg doesn’t seem to like Scratch very much! So how will Scratch and Pegleg fare when they are set adrift in a lifeboat to await capture by pirates?
