After wandering away from his mom and sibling, he’s found in the forest by a little girl and moves with her into the city, where he finds adventure and makes new friends: Prémâché, the big cat of the alley; the spiders of the special arachno-intervention unit; Billy, the nice neighbour; and the parents of the little girl. The cat will eventually learn that his mother still lives in St. Hilarion, and that he had better learn to speak gull if he wants to find her.
