Chapter One

So, one night, he left ...

He went places he wasn't meant to go

and did things he wasn't meant to do,

and made friends with the Pesky Cat Gang.

... the car screeched to a halt and Emily jumped out. "Mr. Pusskins! My beautiful Mr. Pusskins!" she cried. "I didn't recognize you!"

Emily scooped up her dear cat. At last they were together again.
