The last little cat was born in a kennel, surrounded
by dogs and dog cages and dog noises. The little cat was always half-cold

last little cat was well fed. But how could such a small cat know that barn

The story of how the last little cat found a home, and
not only a home, but the perfect home, again confirms Meindert DeJong's place
among the finest writers of this or any day.
