Mog loves her garden, but somehow it seems to have completely disappeared over night. What Mog doesn't realise is that the flappy floppy thing that has replaced her garden is in fact a marquee put up for a cat show. Mog hides in the house and is oblivious to the cats of various sizes and colours who parade themselves hoping to be winners. Then curiosity takes over and Mog makes a spectacular entrance in true prize-winning form!
