Teaching Midnight’s Christmas

Midnight’s Christmas

Midnight is a little rescue cat whose original owners reluctantly had to leave her behind when they moved away from England. She has come to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jones, a kindly older couple with a large house in the country. Midnight has a number of adventures with the Joneses and the other cats they’ve adopted, including a big ginger cat named The Colonel, two beautiful Siamese cats named Lucy and Sally, their house cats Jeremy and Jemimah, and an aging street cat missing half an ear, Scotty.
