Morris is a lovable, greedy fat ginger kitten. In this story he is afraid of the new cat flat, but how will he get his food which is inside the house, when he is outside! A Roaring Good Read for new readers
Morris is a loveable chubby, lazy kitten. When a new cat flap is installed in the door, Morris is horrified. Morris is scared. It doesn’t bother his sister, Rose. It doesn’t bother his brother, Tom. But Morris is so scared that he leaves a little puddle on the kitchen floor, rather than have to go outside through the catflap. What Morris is scared of is losing his tail. He thinks the catflap will swing shut and chop off his tail.
However, Morris does manage to get outside, but it will take a great deal of persuasion to get him back inside – a spot of well cooked fish might get him to budge.
Lovely lively story, perfect for beginner readers, particularly those who love cats.
