Overview

When school is out, Alisa spends each day with her sister, who works in a medical clinic. But Alisa feels alone and out of place. One day, she sees a new face — a stray cat. After five days, they become friends and she names him Cinco. Together, they get involved in the activities at the medical clinic — and make more friends along the way. CINCO THE CLINIC CAT is a story about friendship, set in a medical clinic in Latin America with vivid watercolor illustrations that capture the spirit of the culture. Carol, the author, met this kitty while working at a medical clinic in Honduras. Their meeting inspired this story about a cat who needs a home and a little girl who wishes for a friend, in a special place where people work together to help others.
