Every Friday, Glynnis goes to visit Nanny Mac and her cowardly cat, Patches. When Nanny Mac falls and breaks her hip, Glynnis and her father must find a new home for Patches. A farmer agrees to take the cat because his children would like a house cat. Patches demonstrates that she is not as fearful as people think when she frightens a barn cat out of her territory, the house. Anne Louise MacDonald, the author of this picture book which was published on Prince Edward Island, lives in Nova Scotia.
