Cat + tartan paint = ME!

I'm Porridge, the world's ONLY tartan cat. ME-OW! I'm always ready to lend a paw when the McFun family (my humans) get in to trouble -- which is all the time. ME-SIGH.

Horrid Auntie Hettie and her pampered pooch Fluffy-Wuff want to win the Best Pet in Scotland trophy. ME-GRR! With a little help from Invisible Isla and a DOLLOP of help from a LOT of vanishing cream, I'll show them who's the best pet EVER!

Join me on a gnu-gluing, pet-racing, razzle-dazzling adventure – before I DISAPPEAR!
