When a family loses their pet dog, the family cat became lonely. The cat, who once loved to play and eat, began to stop eating her treats and quit playing. The young child in the family tried everything she could to cheer up her cat. She took the cat to the vet and explained what was wrong. The vet diagnosed the cat with being lonely after her pal (the dog) was gone.
The vet brought in a very small kitten who also looked blue. The vet said that this kitten was lonely after it was abandoned. When the two cats met they began to play and enjoy each other’s company. The vet asked the family if they would consider adopting the kitten. What would the family do? It was a big decision.
This lovely hardback book is beautifully bound and the illustrations by Bulankina Ka are great! The author’s words are going to draw children in because of the lovely rhymes. Children and parents will really enjoy this story.
