This was so boring. The whole story could have been told in one small chapter. A girl's cat died so she was too sad to want another cat. Then she fell in love with her friends new kittens and her parents adopted it for her before someone else could. Now she owns a cat.
So...basically a girl just got a new kitten. That's not a story.

I love these books, beautiful stories about animals. When I was younger I would draw the animals on these book’s cover. These are lovely stories, and I recommend them for 7+.

Why wouldn't anyone want a kitten!? Mia recently lost her beloved kitty, Sandy, and wasn't quite ready to open her heart to a kitten, even when her best friend's cat had kittens.

Based on the cover, I expected this book to be too soft and fluffy, even for me, but I was delightfully surprised! The writing really expressed the sadness of loss and the joys of kittens, and I felt all the emotions along with Mia.

The story is very cat-focused and will appeal to a small audience, and the story was very
