After stopping some kids from throwing rocks at a group of cats, a boy finds a little black kitty starving and shivering in the snow. He wants to save the poor little black kitty but doesn’t know how! With the help of a friendly volunteer, he learns all about community cats. The neighbors call them “Nobody’s cats”, but what will they think when the boy springs into action and becomes a superhero to help the little black kitty and the rest of the community cats?
Nobody’s Cats: How One Little Kitty Came in from the Cold is based on the true story of a project to help community cats in the small town of Burns Lake in rural northern British Columbia, Canada. Local students helped pick the ending of the story! It also features their amazing community cat artwork.
This book is a gentle and fun way for young children to learn about proper care for the animals in their lives. Children love to read along and discover the surprise ending.
Note: this picture book has a “2-in-1” format with the “My Happy Dog” and “My Happy Cat” stories back-to-back. The Kindle Editions feature one story or the other.
