Darcy is delighted her lively new tabby kitten, Charlie, is settling in so well – if only he would just wear a collar! Then Darcy is picked to join her school football team and suddenly she hardly has any time for entertaining a kitten.

Charlie is bored now Darcy has no time to play with him, so he ventures over the back wall to explore. There he meets a new friend, a cat-loving lady who makes lots of fuss over him. But Darcy soon starts to notice that Charlie keeps disappearing and one night he doesn’t come back at all. What if he doesn’t want to be her kitten any more?
