Filled with information on animal welfare, instructional guides, and personal rescue stories of kittens like Chloe, Tidbit, Hank, and Badger -not to mention hundreds of adorable kitten photos - this is the must-have kitten book for cat lovers, current and future rescuers, foster parents, activists, and advocates.
