The Turkish angora caught the the attention of the world when, just by being his inquisitive and charming self, his antics cheered up Wellingtonians during the 2020 lockdown.

Read all about Mittens' adventures around the capital city in this delightful rhyming story by Silvio Bruinsma, Mittens's guardian, with exuberant illustrations by the acclaimed illustrator and hippest of Wellingtonians, Phoebe Morris.
