Title: Bad Kitty Meets The Baby
Author: Nick Bruel
Publisher: Roaring Brook Press 2011
Summary: Yep, trouble’s coming. It was bad enough when the “foul and wretched” dog arrived to disrupt Kitty’s blissful, solitary life but another very special surprise was on the horizon. For one week Bad Kitty’s people are gone and when they return, they bring back the surprise. Justifiable confusion results. The newcomer, “drools a lot, smells terrible, and is noisy.” Bad Kitty’s friends in the neighborhood come over to meet her and after noticing she likes to play with cat toys, she can be stinky, she’s very talkative and she can answer Strange Kitty’s question on the Fantastic Feline Five’s adventures in issue #189 of Astonishing Cat Comics, they decide she is a true Kitty and as such can compete in The Pussycat Olympics. New Kitty proves herself to be a champion – leveling the playing field in all competitions including “Stare-at-yourself-in-a-mirror-until-you-get-bored,” “Who-can-create-the-biggest-stink” (also known as “Who-can-outstink-Stinky-Kitty”) and even defeating Bad Kitty in The Eating Contest. Bad Kitty is not a gracious loser and proceeds to throw a screaming temper tantrum. This relationship has not started out well. Can things turn around? Will Bad Kitty and Baby become adversaries or allies? You’ll have to read Bad Kitty Meets The Baby to find out. And as a special treat, you can also learn how to teach your cat some Cat Tricks. If you have a cat like mine, I would suggest investing in full combat gear before trying the “Shake a Paw” trick. And Begging? I don’t think so.
