Follow a stray cat as she braves the snowy city streets to find a home in this nearly-wordless picture book.  

A calico cat with curious eyes cautiously approaches a grocery store. . . . only to be shooed away by the owner with a broom. She keeps wandering, and tries to climb on a city bus— but the driver tells her to SCRAM!

Disheartened, the cat huddles down as snow begins to fall— until another bus pulls up, and the driver welcomes her aboard. And when an old man sits down beside her, the cat makes a friend for life— and finally finds the home she’s been searching for.

A purr-fect pick for cat lovers, this heartwarming picture book features a simple text, heavy with onomatopoeia, and striking, bold illustrations that carry the story, depicting the charming cat’s range of emotions. 

See how a simple act of kindness can change lives forever.  Young readers will empathize with the strong emotional content—hunger, loneliness, and rejection, giving way to contentment and joy—and delight in the expressive illustrations.
