This is one of my all time favourite books when I was younger.
A boy called Peter, who was denied a cat by his parents, wakes up
one day as a cat. His first day finds him lost and alone,
bewildered by the laws of the cat world. He meets another cat
called Jennie who carefully guides him to the things he needs to
Their adventure takes them around the ocean sailing the coast of
the UK and ending in Glasgow where Jennie is from. Peril sometimes
finds them, I recall one situation where Peter had to kill his
first rat. A single scratch from a rat is poison and there is no
way to practice in such a situation. A lot of "leap even if you
can't look" situations. (But your a cat so you land on your feet
more often then not anyway.)
My only problem with this book is that it ends as if it were all a
dream. The adventure was just too much to believe that.
