Cat In The City: 05/05/16

Cat In The City by Julie Salamon

Cat In The City by Julie Salamon is the tale of a stray cat living in New York who finds a home. Every neighborhood has a cat, you know, the one who knows all the friendly buildings, knows where to get food, has a route and a routine. Cat in the City is the tale of one such cat, dubbed Pretty Boy, by one of the locals.

Sometimes these cats sojourn, finding a favorite home among the friendlies. They'll stay a little longer, hanging in the yard, maybe sleeping in a storage shed or garage, and eventually even inside the home. And that's what Pretty Boy does.

But moving in can be stressful and confusing. It can be even worse when your humans decide to move far away from your territory. Pretty Boy gets caught up in the middle of ones of these moves and that's the final conflicts here.

It's a sweet book based on a real cat, also named Pretty Boy.

Four stars
