Mog the Cat
Once there was a cat called Mog.
She lived with a family called Thomas.
Mog was nice but not very clever.
She didn’t understand a lot of things.
A lot of other things she forgot.
She was a very forgetful cat
Forgetful but unforgettable, Mog the cat has been making adults and children smile since her inception in 1970. Her creator, the much-loved author and illustrator Judith Kerr, based her eponymous character on a lifetime’s family cats and for many she is the quintessential moggy.
With her perpetually anxious face, oft-turned down mouth and drooping whiskers Mog is a cat we can all empathise with. The world, to her, is a confusing, baffling, mixed-up place and she often ends up just where she shouldn’t be when all she really wants is her nice warm bed and a boiled egg for her tea.
A lifelong favourite, Mog has a permanent home on the shelves of Waterstones and you’ll always find her here.
As long as she hasn’t forgotten where her cat flap is again…
