A fun, funny new chapter book series full of adorable pets and silly adventures! The next guest at the Pet Hotel is a tabby cat named Matilda.

Is he just a mischief maker, or does he know something about the tabby cat that Meg and Charlie don't?

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Twins Meg and Charlie love living in the Pet Hotel that is owned by their great-great Aunt Saffron and managed by their parents. Meg has recently acquired a puppy of her own, and Charlie is yearning for a cat. The twins help with caring for the animal guests, making sure they have food and water and taking the dogs for walks. Elvis, a small cockatiel, screeches a line from his namesake's song, Hound Dog, and hops from place to place. Although an injured wing has fully healed, Elvis does not fly yet, and the twins are determined to get him back into the air. When Matilda, a pregnant cat, checks into the hotel, Elvis stays near her until he gets trapped in the dumb waiter. The only way out for him is by air, and he flies to the opening. Charlie adopts one of the kittens and all ends happily. Black-and-white illustrations contribute to the meaning and add humor. This book is a good choice for young animal-loving readers. Part of the "Pet Hotel" series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.

Icefire padded up to Cloudripple. "I think you should. No one would ever vote me, and other cats are much better than I. Commetstorm, you should, too." She meowed. "But-" Stormy meowed, but was cut off with a glare from his mother. Stormypaw looked at his paws in shame. "I agree with Cloudripple with all my heart. It would be nice to speak at the gathering, though. But, more cats know you." Icefire meowed to Cloudripple. (I totally agree with Cloudripple!)

(Aw, thanks, guys!) Cloudripple looked down at her paws, not expecting that response. "Um, ok. If that's what the clan wants." She exchanged a glance with Cometstorm. Bluefleet looked at Amberspirit. "What do you mean? You've always been here." (Omg I seriously didn't expect that to happen!)

"I'd like to speak as well, but Cloudripple, you and Cometstorm would do much better than me." Amberspirit blinks. "I want what's best for the clan, and you and Cometstorm are those things right now, no matter how much I'd like to lead." Her voice lowers. "It's all I've ever wanted, but I have no right to. I abandoned HorseClan." Sadness glistens in her eyes, and memories swell like waves in them, sadness, happiness, and love.

This is long but please read it, its important!! <p> Hey guys, Blackfeather wa supposed to post amessge for me but it doesnt look like she did. We've been having really bad weather and our wifi hasn't been working at all. Things are looking clearer tonight so hopefully that was the end of that. It doesn't look like a lot of rping has been going on, which is the perfect way to get a clan inactive is just talking. So lets get back to rping, if you want to just talk to someone my suggestion is to get a book where you and said person can talk. I am going to find us a new camp, Amberspirit, no getting locked out! Lol! In the meantime, I think you'll all agree we need some new members so everyone who can, help advertise in the Erin Hunter books. Dont advertise in other clans, I hate that lol. Anyways, GET TO RPING!! pwees? <p> Velvetstar stood up and shook out her silky white and black fur. "Who's up for ahunting patrol? Any apprintices want to go out training?" She asked, eager to get her clan running again. -Velvetstar-
