He's had a tough start in life - someone found him sleeping rough outside a fish and chip shop when he was only a few days old - but that hasn't affected his naughty nature. Oscar's always getting himself into scrapes: chasing the neighbour's dog (and getting chased up a tree in return!), falling into the bath and even following Natasha all the way to school one day... Natasha loves her daredevil kitten, but she worries about him all the time. Will his latest daring adventure (and his safe return) prove to her that maybe being a bit naughty can be good for you?
