About the Book

Micky is a Siamese cat. His owners left him behind in Moscow when they went on a long business trip to New York City, taking with them their son and a pet dog whom Micky loved so much he nearly died missing them. After Russian customs officer twice refused to allow him leave the country to join his family, he decided to get there on his own. Running away from home, he went to the local train station to learn how to get to New York and from that moment, his adventure began. During his journey he met many different people, cats, and dogs. From those encounters, he came to the conclusion that people could solve, or even avoid, a lot of their problems if they could understand animals.
