'The change in Old Cat, from fighting tom, to this loving, playful animal was almost like a miracle. And Joel had not only watched it happen, but had helped to bring it about.'

As you read this chapter book for readers eight and older you'll see just how an old cat with an attitude was transformed by a young boy into a docile and remarkably affectionate feline. It takes the boy, Joel, time and patience to bring Old Cat around but the youth succeeds.

Unfortunately, the story ends on a sad but realistic note when Joel must move away and he can't take his new friend with him.

This reissue is on its way to classic status and anyone who loves cats will find this a special read. Be forewarned, though; there isn't a sugar-coated, sweet ending. It is sad!
