This book was about two inventors who invented a chip which gives cats infinity lives and robots no more recharges. Two twins named Max and Min are
both competing- in a game competition and a bottle of the bots. When their mom and dad leave for China, the trouble begins. Pounce De Leon is going to earth to get the chip for the feline empire. Sir Beeps A Lot is after the chip too, for the robot federation.  I liked the book because it involved robots and cats.
