Life is suddenly changing for nine-year-old Zoe and Ben. The O’Reilly twins are moving from their house in the country to a city home in a neighborhood they know nothing about. Saying goodbye to friends and leaving familiar surroundings is tough and they don’t want to go. Their cat Purrsnikitty is famous for chasing cows and herding sheep. Without woods, how will he adjust to city living? Even worse, their new street seems deserted, without any other kids for them to play with. Then, Purrsnikitty begins to disappear. He returns home every day with weird gifts, like a map and an eagle feather. Where is Purrsnikitty getting his loot? Why is he dragging it home? Has their oddball country kitty turned into a city bandit cat? Determined to solve the bandit cat mystery, Zoe and Ben investigate. When the cat gives a huge yellow maple leaf to a stranger, it triggers an exciting chain of events. In the process, the twins meet new neighbors, make new friends and learn that life in the city can be just as much fun as life in the country.
