Respect for the environment, animals and ourselves - this is what the inquisitive Melissa, a 6-year-old girl discusses with Mr Cat, a wise stray cat. Six stories told over the course of one year in the life of the little girl to share a little of the wisdom accumulated by the cat over years travelling the world. Through these stories, the cat asks adults to stop and reflect for a moment on the important subjects such as ecology, pollution, pain and friendship. A children's book that appeals to adults who still know how to find the time to talk with their little ones. And Cats!
