New Cat: 02/07/17

New Cat by Yangsook Choi

New Cat by Yangsook Choi is about the special friendship between the owner of a tofu factory and a cat. New Cat has been living in the tofu factory since she wandered in as a stray. She likes the office. She keeps Mr. Kim's seat warm when he's on the factory floor. She keeps eye on the computer mouse. That sort of thing.

That is until rats start to show up. They're sneaky enough to avoid Mr. Wu's attention. But not New Cat's. Rat's though are dangerous. They like to chew. The chew through anything — including wires.

Mr. Wu nearly loses the tofu factory to a rat started fire. Of course he cares about his factory and his workers but it's New Cat he's most worried about. New Cat, though, probably needs to be renamed Smart Cat for how she saves the factory and herself.
