A poignant and uplifting picture story that introduces socially important topics: homelessness and post traumatic stress disorder – as well as the loyalty and value of pets

Born in a city park, the little cat belongs to no-one, until he is befriended and cared for by Donald, a soldier. When Donald is sent away to fight in a far-off war-zone, the cat waits for him to return, at Edinburgh's Waverley Station. And waits … Travellers and railway staff name him Waverley, and look after him. But he is waiting for Donald. Years go by, until one day at last he hears a voice he knows. Warfare has drastically changed Donald's life, but when the lonely cat and the forgotten man are reunited, their world suddenly seems a brighter and more hopeful place. Set in a real city – Edinburgh – this is a groundbreaking picture story that introduces important social issues of homelessness, post-traumatic stress disorder, and underlines the value of pets.
