A bushy-tailed cat gets into a snowball fight with a feisty bird, does battle with a roll of scotch tape and tries to befriend a garden gnome. Welcome to the whimsical world of Simon's Cat, a series of films, books and a comic strip about a demanding feline and the patient, beleaguered man who loves him.

Simon's Cat is the creation of Simon Tofield, 40, whose cat's eye view on life is dead on. "The guy in the cartoon will do anything for his cat and the cat knows it and takes advantage," Tofield explains. "He has [Simon] twisted around his finger." What makes Simon's Cat different than say, Garfield, is that it doesn't speak or think out loud -- it is the cat's movements and motivations that are charming and funny. Simon's cat is like our cats - only more so.
