Poor Simon’s Cat. He’s so done with that pesky kitten stealing his food, his bed and his thunder. So thoroughly fed up is he that he has left home! But his tail is held high, and he is a cat in search of new adventure.
We have placed 100 special Simon’s Cat toys around Britain, in all major cities. If you keep your eyes peeled for two little white ears soaking up the sights and attractions of the UK, you not only get to keep him, you win a set of five Simon’s Cat prints chronicling this escapade and signed by Simon, and a signed copy of Simon’s Cat: In Kitten Chaos. We’ll be posting up sightings and giving out clues on @canongatebooks to his whereabouts, so keep hunting right up until Christmas!
If you find Simon’s Cat, wandering far from home, please email a photo of yourself with the missing cat (ideally where you found him, so we can put it in his travel diary) to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will win the signed prints of five drawings done by Simon Tofield, depicting Simon’s Cat’s adventure, and a signed copy of Simon’s Cat: In Kitten Chaos.
