A picture book by sisters Kate Klise and M. Sarah Klise about a stray cat who won a cat show, based on a true story!

Everyone loves an underdog—especially when he’s a cat!

On a rainy morning in 1947, a small gray kitten wandered into the Hamilton Hotel in St. Louis, Missouri, two days before the Greater St. Louis Cat Club Show.

A stray kitten. A fancy hotel. A serious contest for pedigreed cats. What could possibly go right?

Curl up with this heartwarming story based on a real-life stray cat who made international headlines just by showing up, being himself, and finding a little kindness . . .
