‘Bother that cat!’ 

Mog is a very forgetful cat. She forgets that she has a cat flap, she forgets that she’s already eaten her supper, and she forgets that cats don’t have eggs for breakfast every day. 

But Mog’s forgetfulness can come in handy… 

Join Mog and the Thomas family, on a journey through one year in the life of a really remarkable cat, as she catches a burglar, gate-crashes a cat show, goes to the V.E.T. and gets to eat lots and lots of eggs. Everyone’s favourite cat might be forgetful, but she certainly has a lot of adventures, and she loves her family very much.
