About Pete the Cat

Peter the Cat is a fun dude – he goes a’strolling down the street wearing his brand new white shoes that he loves.  Naturally, along the way, his shoes no longer remain pure white. They change color from white to red, from red to blue, from blue to brown and from brown to WET! All these colorful messes are the result of Pete stepping as into piles of strawberries, blueberries and more. But these messes don’t seem to effect Pete’s festive mood – no matter what color his shoes acquire, Pete keeps on movin’ and groovin’ and singing along his funky song…and it’s all good. Pete is a wonderful splash of color and positive energy, full of artistic creativity and inspiration.
