When Porridge was a wee kitten he toppled into a tin of tartan paint—which is easy to do and not so easy to say. Now he lives near Loch Loch with the quirky McFun family—Gadget Grandad, Groovy Gran, Dino Dad, Mini Mum, the twins, Roaring Ross, and Invisible Isla. Everyone has a super-secret (or two), and Porridge is always there to lend a helping paw when things go awry. If there’s a fishy biscuit in it for him . . .

And things do often go awry in the McFun family. It’s a good job Porridge has nine lives!

Porridge the Tartan Cat (it’s a long story involving a tin of tartan paint!) has lost his tail—or rather, it’s invisible, and so is Isla! When pesky Auntie Hettie and her pampered pooch enter the perfect pet show, they will stop at nothing to WIN. But Porridge and Invisible Isla have different ideas. Vanishing cream, dancing dugs, and a Best Pet Trophy—how much trouble can a tartan cat get into?

In this zany series for young readers, Porridge purrfectly CAT-a-logs the family’s hilarious adventures from a cat’s-eye perspective. With wacky twists, silly word play, and meow-nificent illustrations in every chapter, readers won’t even want to paws for breath.
