Having a cat for a pet is a big responsibility, and there are certain things that you really need to know if you are going to be a good cat owner. One thing you should not do to your cat is to “throw pillows at it.” Nor should punish your cat if it complains that its litter box needs cleaning. You should never tease your cat or ignore it when you come home from school. Instead, you should give your pet the attention it deserves. If you do, you will surely be rewarded with love and purrs.

This delightful board book will show little children what a good cat owner does to make sure that his or her pet is happy. With deliciously funny rhymes, Jane Yolen begins by showing us what bad cat owners do, and then she shows us what good cat owners do.

This is one of several dinosaur books that Jane Yolen and Mark Teague have created together.
