327Y: Giant Cat Saves The Day (Solved!)

It's a collection of children's stories. Possibly bedtime stories? The only one I can remember is about a baker's cat. The town find him annoying. One day he drinks yeasty water that the Baker left out then sleeps in the sun and grows huge. The town has a dike and it springs a leak but the giant cat lays down in front of it until they can fix it so he's a hero?? They bring him food and scratch under his chin with pitchforks to keep him in place.

  1. Most details are very similar to The Baker’s Cat by Joan Aitken. You can find it in ‘A necklace of raindrops and other stories’.
