Emma Cox - Malkin Moonlight

This is the story of a cat called Malkin Moonlight who arrives one night at a Recycling Centre. He has lost the cat he loves - his friend Roux - and is looking for her, navigated only by the thing inside: the sixth sense that all cats possess. The cats that live in the Recycling Centre and Malkin quickly become friends. He helps them fight their battle against the Putrescibles: the vicious cats who live on the other side of the wall in a stinking wasteland, and proves himself a valuable ally, but will he find his long lost friend?
