Overview

Rama the Gypsy Cat by Betsy Byars

Rama the cat has no home. He is the Gypsy Cat, and a life full of travel and adventure awaits him.
When a gypsy woman found Rama as a kitten, she pierced his ear with a golden earring and named him after an exiled prince who wandered for years, having many adventures. Rama the cat lives up to his namesake when he strays from the wagon that was his home, and begins his own thrilling journey, discovering dangers on the wharf, in the forest, and by the river, encountering new foes and friends. Will Rama ever return to his old life . . . and does he even want to? This ebook features an illustrated biography of Betsy Byars including rare images from the author’s personal collection.

I read this book only once when I was about ten. Now, at 40, I can still remember it and I've been looking for it for years! That should say something!
