Rufus the cat loved curling up in his favourite place and dreaming of pilchards. But it hadn’t always been like this… When Rufus was a kitten, he lived with a different family who weren’t always kind. Rufus still remembered those times and bad memories followed him everywhere. Would he ever find a safe place where he could be cosy and calm and dream his dreams?

This charming picture book explores how children may be affected by traumatic memories of their past. It focuses on how children can heal and learn to feel safe in a new environment.

What you will find in this book

Everyone was kind and gentle in his new home. But when Rufus first arrived…

He roared like a tiger, if ever he was cross.

He wouldn’t eat anything apart from pilchards.

And if anyone raised their voice, he shot to the top of the tree at the bottom of the garden before you could say ‘Rufus Robinson’!

This book is accompanied by practical guidelines to aid and facilitate further conversation.

This book is published by the British Association of Adoption and Fostering (BAAF), the leading organisation for adoption and fostering in the UK.
