Once there were two very lonely people who lived in a very old apartment block, in a very busy city.

Although they had lived there a very long time, they’d never met.

Their names were Josephine and Pierre and  each spent their days wistful and alone until… Monsieur Chat arrived! Each feels less lonely with him around, but when he disappears a desperate search unites them and changes their lives forever…
