A quirky tale, told in comic-strip format, of the secret double life of the laziest cat in the world 

Fred is an adored family cat (now deceased) who slept all the time—on the ironing board, on the washing machine, on top of the fridge, on cars, and particularly on beds—although he took a little time off to sit on laps purring and to eat. Only after his death do Sophie and Nick discover that, by night, he was the Elvis of the cat-world, Famous Fred, the most famous cat in the world, with hordes of devoted fans—who give him a suitably raucous funeral.
