Nice place they got here.
Bed. Bowl. Blankie. Just like home!
Or so I've been told.
Yawn. I pretend not to care.
Yet -- I sneak a peek.
So begins this beguiling tale of a wary shelter cat and the boy who takes him home.
Sometimes funny, sometimes touching, this adoption story, told entirely in haiku, is unforgettable.
