What does a cat want in a best friend? Someone who knows just where to scratch. Someone who can read the many moods of a cat's tail. Someone who knows when to play and when to stay away.

In fact, this cat might just have someone special in mind....

With characteristic humor and a light touch, Wendy Wahman shows readers what cats like and what they don't. "A Cat Like That" is perfect for every kid who meets a feline friend from the overeager ones to the scaredy-cats
