The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is a lovely story about friendship and the importance of having respect for all animals and to realise that you can’t always do to them what you’d like to do because you might hurt their feelings. The story is based on the author’s own family cat called Mac.

Synopsis

Picture Kelpies: My Cat Mac by Margaret Forrester

When a new family move into Mac the cat's Edinburgh town house, he decides to let them stay. He has always wanted a special friend and the little girl Catriona seems very nice. But when Catriona decides to dress Mac up in doll's clothes and pushes him around in her pram, he is not impressed. Mac leaves home to teach Catriona a lesson. Catriona misses Mac, but will he miss her? And will Catriona learn to give Mac the respect he needs? A charming and funny story about learning to respect animals and about the importance of friendship.
