Catastrophe Cat is a young adult novel about a girl who survives Cyclone Tracy, but loses her beloved cat Tia, swept away by the fierce winds. Evacuated with her family to Melbourne, she struggles with grief welling up in her heart. But amid the rubble of her devastated home city, miracles are still possible, and Tia is a hardier survivor than one might expect of a small Siamese! Catastrophe Cat is an emotionally well crafted tale of perseverance.
