About the Book


Through the words and the story of an Itty-Bitty Calico Kitty, children of all ages will be inspired by this delightful and engaging tale of the importance of giving and receiving love. 


The Itty-Bitty Calico Kitty goes from being lost to finding a foster home to being sick in a crate unable to play with the other kitties. All the while, she is thankful for those caring for her – so she gives love and receives it in return. When she finds her forever home she is shy at first, but soon she knows she is home for good - where she realizes she is deserving of love and that no matter how different we are everyone wants love deep down inside. 


This children’s story tells the true tale of the Itty-Bitty Calico Kitty, a lost kitten who finds her way to a new family learning valuable lessons and discovering important truths about love along the way.
