I See Kitty: 04/30/16

I See Kitty by Yasmine Surovec

I See Kitty by Yasmine Surovec is a picture book about a little girl who falls in love with a kitten and tries and tries to convince her parents to let her adopt it.

There's a lot the same humor as her Cat vs Human but tone down for children. The emphasis is moved from the crazy euphoria some cat owners feels to a more warm and fuzzy bonding between human and cat.

Can I keep her?

My daughter and I enjoyed the book together. She was a big part of our keeping Tortuga kitten for more than the two weeks she needed to be bottle weaned. She, a kindergartner, and Tortuga, a month old kitten, bonded the instant they first met. Tortuga was just a gray fluff ball at the bottom of a big box. My daughter just wanted to hold her and help her feel safe and loved.
