One day in a life of a little boy and his pet cat is portrayed in this poetic picture book with dreamlike illustrations.

In this book the readers follow the actions of a little boy and his kitten in the course of one day and during this time we discover that there are more similarities between humans and animals than we would think--from sleeping and eating to playing and taking care of yourself. On each spread there is a question asking the readers about the topic concerned on the given page and making the reading experience interactive. Also, there is a little hidden object game throughout the book.

The lovely illustrations by a world-renowned Japanese artist Iku Dekune in combination with text by Czech contemporary poet Radek Maly makes the book Our Cat's Day irresistible.
