People say that if you love someone you have to let them go. Easier said than done, right? Well, maybe it is easier if you know they’re going to have a great time.
Missing Cats is a book that brings hope to everyone who had a cat that went lost. What if your cat is not gone, but rather went to do something it really enjoyed? For example, going for a delicious meal, seeing a friend, taking a nap or shopping for toys… The cats in this book are having the time of their life. Based on what most cats love, each illustration brings the young reader into a world where it is easy to see why a cat may want some time on its own, to explore and have fun.
