Where Is That Cat? 04/19/11
As anyone who lives with cats knows, cats do their own thing. When a non-cat person shows up the cat will invariably sit in that person's lap. Where is that Cat? by Carol Greene is all about once such cat and the old lady he befriends.
Miss Perkins finds a kitten whom she names Fitz. She's not much of a cat person but she can see he needs a home. She offers him a temporary one while she searches for someone to adopt him. Except every time someone comes by, Fitz is hiding.
Sharp-eyed children will enjoy finding Fitz. Harriet had fun comparing Fitz's hiding spots to our own cat's favorite hiding spots.
But best of all the book is about Fitz finding his forever home through gentle, perseverance. Miss Perkins also comes to realize she might not be a cat person but she has room in her heart and her home for one little kitten.
