Have you ever wondered why cats act the way they do? Why do they run around the house at night and sleep most of the day? Why do they hide in boxes and paper bags? Why do they like high places? This book follows a cat named Kingsley through her day and compares her actions to those of her big cousins who live in the forests and jungles of the world. Cat lovers will recognize the behavior in their own cats. Children who never had a cat in the family will discover a new appreciation for them. And everyone will learn some fun facts about the big cats that live in the wild.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Jennifer Rogala's two cats and their crazy antics were the inspiration for this book. She had never had a cat until she adopted them as kittens in May 2002. She was surprised at how often they made her laugh. Some of their behavior was quite curi-ous, such as destroying the floor plants and diving into the toilet. My Cat at Home in the Wild is the result of observing her cats' behavior, doing some research on cats, and speaking with other cat lovers.
This is Jennifer's third children's picture book. Her others are titled Ways to Say the Words You've Heard and When My Nose Runs Where Does it Go? Jennifer lives outside of Boston with her husband, twin daughters, and two cats. Visit Jennifer on-line at www.JenniferRogala.com
