The Cat Who Refused a Bath

Bath time is no fun for cats! The threat of a bath scares the cat in this story off on an adventure. It is the start of a wild journey to an eccentric Lord, who keeps horses, pigs, and eventually another cat, competing for space. This is too much for our cat, but as he continues his journey, he meets a mermaid with an important message, and is faced with a huge choice: To bath or not to bath?
