Description of this Electronic Book

Nana Banana called me Misty, until she couldn't look after me anymore. Noni Nice of Pymble called me Nigella, but I was only Nigella for a day. When the Kafoops family found me on the streets of Newtown they called me Lara. I knew I had found my home at last. A witty and wonderful story about a cat looking for love from the one and only Chris McKimmie.
