We’ve asked our #TundraCats authors and illustrators to tell us a little bit more about their favorite felines. Today, we’re meeting Nicola Winstanley’s adorable cat.
What is your cat’s name?
How old is your cat?
Which #TundraCats book is your cat’s favorite?
Am I allowed to choose my own? If not, Princess Puffybottom … and Darryl.
What is your cat’s greatest strengths?
Poking me in the face with his paw to get more pats. Tricking us into feeding him dinner three times in a row. Being fat.
What does friendship mean to your cat?
Letting the small thing lick his ears. (The small thing is our dog, Lulu.)
Complete this sentence: If my cat is staring out the window, it’s because . . .
He’s mad because it’s raining.
