Tom by Dave Freer

Tom is a kitten. At least until he discovers that a wizard bearing fish may be looking for someone to sweep and do the dishes. . . .

The spell teaches him some human things, but he has more to learn. It involves a princess, the danger of using cleaning spells on magical locations, the curse on the royal family, the chatter of an animated skull who thinks his current master is nothing on his old teacher, a bejeweled slipper jumps between worlds, the wickedest witch of the west, a Goth bar, the secret weakness of a demon, an old plan, gnomes, and more.
