Summary from Simon and Schuster
Meet Mr Tiddles - he's not your everyday cat. He's a cat with attitude!
 
When Harry gets a cat of his own, he does everything to make Mr Tiddles happy. Mr Tiddles wants to make Harry happy too. He brings him little presents . . . the odd expired mouse or two, but when Harry wakes up to find a train set, priceless works of art, dinosaurs, robots and a horse named Alan in his bedroom, he realizes things are completely out of control!
 
Nayuleska's thoughtsI'm a cat lover, and a few of the actions Mr Tiddles does could easily have been my cat. Mr Tiddles's nocturnal activities lead Harry on a fruitful goose chase & provides a laughter filled read. I liked the extra touches to the illustrations of mice used as food, and both the picture and the text at the end had me giving a big awwww. Mr Tiddles gets 10/10 from me once I hide any items he might take a fancy to.
