Patchy Scratchy is a cat who is allergic to wool. He is teased because of this. He becomes a hero when he saves a kitten. A great story for teaching children how they can beat the odds if they try.
Patchy Scratchy is a cat who is allergic to wool. His fur gets all patchy and thin which is why he got his name. The cats in the neighbourhood won't play with Patchy Scratchy because they think he is odd. They are rude and nasty to Patchy, calling him names. One day Patchy jumps into a flooded stormwater drain to save a kitten. He then becomes a hero and everybody wants to know him. The nasty cats try to win his friendship, but Patchy has gained so much more than friends--his own self-respect.
