Varjak Paw is a cat with attitude – as well as knowing each of the Seven Skills that give cats their special powers. All of that should make him invincible but Sally bones who leads the most dangerous gang in the city knows all of that too – and more. Can Varjak survive in this cat-to-cat world?

Having saved the city cats from a fate worse than death, Varjak Paw finds himself the elected and popular leader of a new gang - a gang that supports freedom and kindness for all. But will the pressure take its toll on this brave, yet sometimes naive cat? This adventure is aimed at Varjak fans.
