Comments for Rich Cat, Poor Cat

Rich Cat, Poor Cat: 12/07/14

cover artRich Cat, Poor Cat by Bernard Waber is the story of Scat the cat who spends her time on the streets imagining how life must be for the house cats she sees in the windows.

Much of the book then is a compare and contrast. Some cats do this, and Scat has to make do with that. For instance, some cats look out windows, smell roses, (basically the ultimate in catios), while Scat is stuck with cobblestones for a pillow. Some cats love getting petted and fondled — and so would Scat.

While not every stray cat — and I'm calling Scat a stray in lieu of feral because she clearly desires human companionship and is therefore socialized — has a happy ending, Scat does. There's a special someone, a cat companion, if you will, who has a place in her heart and her home for Scat the cat. They also give her a new name.

If you want a cat, I recommend checking out your local shelter.
