Do cats really have a sixth sense?
 
War hero, world traveler, adventurer, bodyguard—not the first descriptions that come to mind when we think of cats. But in this collection of true stories about the fascinating behavior of cats around the world readers will meet Grover, who saved his owners’ lives when their house caught fire. And Sugar, who spent fourteen months trekking 1,500 miles from California back home to Oklahoma.
Marilyn Singer offers a collection of inspiring cat stories, providing a historical framework and behavioral context to explain each cat’s actions.
 
Cats to the Rescue is a 2007 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
