Hairy Maclary Scattercat, first published in 1985, is the third of the series of books by New Zealand author Lynley Dodd featuring Hairy Maclary. The book is written with rhythmic, rhyming text and is popular with pre-school age children. In this book Hairy Maclary has fun chasing all the cats in the neighbourhood until he meets Scarface Claw, the toughest tom in town.[1][2]

Dodd featured her black cat Wooskit, which she had for 13 years, in many of her early books. In Hairy Maclary Scattercat, Wooskit was more prominent than in prior books. In subsequent books, her cat was then named Slinky Malinki. There were five books featuring Slinky Malinki and during that time, Dodd got a new cat named Suu Kyi.[3]
