Summary (from GoodReads):
When a stray kitten is raised by a family of dogs, she grows up thinking she is a dog. She fetches, growls, gives paw, and even does her best to bark. She loves her dog family, but when a little girl wants to adopt her and gives her the perfect name, the kitten will have to decide where her home really is.
Favorite Quotes from the Book:
You'll always be part of our family.
This cute little tale of a kitten raised by dogs who eventually finds her place is a great story about being different and still being able to fit in and find one's place in life. The story flowed well and the illustrations were perfect. An entertaining read with a great point at the end (though I felt that it could have been elaborated upon a bit more but perhaps the author feared being too "preachy")
