"Nice place they got here. "

"Bed. Bowl. Blankie. Just like home "

"Or so I've been told. "

"Visiting hours "

"Yawn. I pretend not to care. "

"Yet -- I sneak a peek. "

So begins this beguiling tale of a wary shelter cat and the boy who takes him home.

Sometimes funny, sometimes touching, this adoption story, told entirely in haiku, is unforgettable.
