Grumpy Mr. Pusskins the cat lives in a comfortable house and has a loving owner that takes great care of him. Of course, this is not enough for the fickle feline because he is bored and longs for the excitement of the unknown. So he runs away to see if he can find what he's looking for out there. In the end, life is lived, tears are shed, and lessons are learned. Namely the lesson that the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence (or for you city dwellers who don't have much grass around, that the snow is always less yellow on the other side of the street).
Note: This book was later adapted into the screenplay for The Last Kiss, starring Zack Braff.
