Summary :


The small tom-cat Murkel wakes up early one morning and the story relates his eventful day. He meets the canary in the house, strolls out into the neighbourhood, a bee hums around his nose and the flea family uses his fur as a playground during his siesta. After further adventures he finds his way back home at nightfall.
