How perfectly, perfectly happy we are.

How PURRR-fectly happy we are!”
Tabby McTat is a busker’s cat with the loudest of meows. He sings all day long with his best friend Fred, until one day they get separated. Tabby finds shelter and a new life with all the home comforts a cat could dream of, but he soon misses his old friend. Will they ever find each other? Brought to life on stage with original songs and Freckle’s distinctive style, Tabby McTat is a heart warming story of friendship and loyalty.
