|Plot Summary of What the Cat Knows|
This a beautiful written tale of a foundling kitty, and her struggle to protect her family from the terrors they cannot see. All cat owners will relate to this delightful tale of understanding why kitty behaves in such odd fashion, giving kitty a bath, or how kitty loves the ring on the milk jug as the best toy in the world while ignoring all the other ones we buy.

When Andy and Carol take the abandoned Cupcake into their home, they are in for a number of surprises. It is fun to see Cupcake, the playful kitten, get tangled in wallpaper and glue while “helping” Andy decorate the new baby's room.
After she gets established in her new home, Cupcake becomes friendly with Thomas, an outside cat. Even though Cupcake is growing up, she is still unsure of herself and her actions. Through windowsill conversations, Thomas is instrumental in helping Cupcake overcome fear and develop courage. This is more than a children's book; I recommend it to anyone who has ever owned or observed a cat.
