When a pig falls from a truck and the driver doesn't stop, Alex saves the frightened animal and gets permission to keep it. Then the belligerent truck driver shows up at Alex's doorstep, determined to reclaim the pig. Alex's parents turn him away, but Alex worries that he'll be back. In the man's truck, Pete the Cat finds evidence that "Hogman" is involved in illegal trapping, but, as usual, Alex and the other humans don't pay any attention to him. The danger grows when Hogman kidnaps Pete. Trapped is another thrilling story from a favorite mystery writer and her humorous cat.
