About the Book

A heartwarming, gorgeously illustrated picture book of an adorable cat finding its forever home, from acclaimed author-artist Tim Miller.

Tiny, brave, playful kitty goes on an adventure through the crowded, noisy city in a story about finding love and kindness in unexpected places. 

The kitten’s bravery, loneliness, playfulness, joy, camaraderie, and curiosity create a rich, emotional journey. The story reflects Tim Miller's passionate advocacy for animal rescue.

No tiny kitty fan will be able to resist this triumphant story of overcoming the odds in the big city.

Critical Praise

"The clever structure, a story told entirely through two-word phrases composed of adjectives and then the nouns “kitty” and “city,” makes for a hypnotic, satisfying read-aloud experience, though the order changes after the first two pages, the only time the kitty precedes the city. A cozy story for cat lovers and anyone looking for a happy ending." — Kirkus Reviews

“This imaginative and creative book...will appeal to all children, as adventure, beginning reader, or even as an inviting cityscape to pore over.” — School Library Journal

“Miller (Horse Meets Dog) chronicles his protagonist’s travels with compositions that range from bird’s-eye views to dramatic low angles, while the abbreviated text may remind readers of their own pets’ epithets: 'Noisy city./ Hiding kitty'; 'Wildlife city./ Playful kitty.'” — Publishers Weekly

“The illustrated cartoonlike spreads, done in acrylic gouache, enable children to follow the journey of the orange-and-white cat as she navigates the busy metropolis and finds kindness and love.” — Booklist
