Description
When three kittens are thrown off the back of a truck, none of the highway cats knows what to make of them. They seem to have an appeal?an energy, even?that Khalia Koo, Jolly Roger, and the rest of the mangy, feral cats don't understand. But there are bigger issues to figure out when the bulldozers start coming, threatening to demolish their homes as well as several historical landmarks. Can three little kittens be the answer to saving the town?
