SIAMESE IN THE SUN: Mandy and James have gone to Jersey with Mandy's mum and dad to look after a local veterinary surgery. They spot a gorgeous Siamese cat ornament in the window of an antiques shop - but they soon discover that Sud Su Ming is a real cat! Mandy thinks she should be entered in the prestigious island cat show but how can she - and Ming - persuade her reluctant owner?

CAT IN THE CANDLELIGHT: Welford is in the grip of a flood when, late one night, Mandy rescues a cat washed to Animal Ark in a barrel. Where can it have come from? Despite the weather, Mandy is determined to find a home for the little cat - and to arrange some seasonal celebrations that the village will never forget!
