Caring Kitty Excerpt:

It was a bright, sunny day on Ahway Island. Kit Cat was zooming around the apartment, excitedly jumping from the couch to Marta’s favorite chair. Kit felt very excited today, she just couldn’t sit still. She happily ran around the house, playing with the feather toys that Marta had left for her. Marta left one toy in particular, a brown stuffed log with pink feathers. The toy smelled so nice the moment Marta had opened it, Kit quickly claimed the log as her new favorite. She loved the crinkly sound that the log made when she had it in her paws. Kit would jump and kick the log, which made Marta laugh a lot.

Kit wasn’t sure where all this energy came from but she was determined to use it. She wanted to jump and run and play and all of the things that happy kitties do! Kit just couldn’t wait until Marta got home. They were going to play all day!

Marta goes to work early in the morning with Skipper Street Sweeper so that all of the streets on Ahway Island were nice and clean for everyone going to work and school. Marta always had a lot of energy when coming home, especially with Kit around. But when Kit ran to the door to greet Marta, she noticed that Marta was walking very slowly.
