Owing to her gift, Celesse the healer cat is a highly esteemed member in the neighbourhood. As the matron’s favourite she enjoys spending her lazy days in the warmth of the house.
But then, a mother hare storms in, asking for help. Her persistence defeats the reluctance of the healer cat, taking her through a nightly snowstorm and biting frost. In a dark forest, Celesse comes face to face with a scary surprise and is forced to gather her powers.
Once the long night and the successful trip are over, the sun comes out, warming not only the snowy forest but also the heart of the healer cat.
The Healer Cat has been published also in Finnish with the name Parantajakissa and in Swedish with the name Katten Gottis.
