Book Excerpt: 
. . .I recollect hearing my mother say one day to somebody,--"Pussy was spoiled by her experience in the cradle. She would like to be rocked the rest of her days, I do believe; and it is too funny to see her turn up her nose at tough beef. It was a pity she ever got a taste of tenderloin!"

At last, what with good feeding and very little exercise, she grew so fat that she was clumsy, and so lazy that she did not want to do any thing but lie curled up on a soft cushion.

Babasıyla teyzesinin yanına giden Helen, hem annesinden hem de kedisinden mektuplar alır. Sevgili kediciği Helen evde yokken başından geçenleri mektuplarında tek tek anlatır. Keyifli bir kitap. Üstelik çizimler de harika!
