The story of Toby Jug, a very fine cat... When Denis O'Connor rescues a three-week-old kitten from certain death during a snowstorm, little does he know how this tiny creature will change his life for ever. Against all odds the kitten - whom he names Toby Jug - survives and forms an unusually strong bond with his rescuer. The adventures of one man and his Maine Coon cat range from an invasion of bees at Owl Cottage to the case of the disappearing tomatoes. Nevertheless, it is only when Denis and Toby Jug embark on a summer camping trip on horseback in the Cheviot Hills that a new world opens up for them both.
