Preschoolers can join the Construction Kitties for a busy day on the job. From sunup to sundown, these friendly felines work hard as they operate dump trucks, bulldozers, and backhoes. But it's not all work a lunch break of sardines and milk hits the spot. Then it's back to the trucks to finish their grand construction. What will it be? A playground for kitties
