Summary
When a pampered cat has to share her home with a lost dog, sparks are set to fly. To her surprise, Catvinkle starts to like Ula. She even tells Ula her three secrets. But a cat and a dog can't be friends - can they? A tail-spin of a tale that will make you howl with laughter - and remind you that if you aren't open to adventure, you might never meet your best friend
Summary
Catvinkle is used to being top cat, completely pampered by Mr Sabatini the barber. So she is horrified when Mr Sabatini brings home a wide-eyed, lost Dalmatian named Ula. Soon Ula is warming herself by Catvinkle's fire. To her surprise, Catvinkle likes the innocent, trusting Dalmatian, and she finds herself telling Ula her three secrets. But a cat and a dog can't be best friends can they? Catvinkle must choose. Will she be brave and join her new friend on a mission to help two sad children, even if it means visiting the biggest, scariest dog in Amsterdam? Or will she leave Ula to face the danger alone?
