Little Cat's Luck Kindle Edition
When an indoor calico cat named Patches spots a golden autumn leaf fluttering past her window, she can’t help but venture outside to chase it. But soon, Patches feels something tugging at her, telling her to find a special place—one she won’t know until she sees it. Why must she go on this search? She doesn’t know yet.
Along the way, Patches finds herself in dire circumstances, but with the help of the other neighborhood animals, she faces off against the scariest dog in town and continues on her journey to her special place.
Beautifully told in verse and accompanied by adorable illustrations by Jennifer A. Bell, this heartwarming novel from Newberry Honor–winner, Marion Dane Bauer, is a timeless, touching, and fulfilling story about finding your way home.

Little calico cat
searching for a place,
a special place
to be her very own.
What she would do with a special place
once she found it,
she wasn’t sure.
Perhaps she would just curl up for a good nap.
But if she didn’t know
what her special place was for,
she knew exactly
what it would be like.
quiet . . .
very, very quiet.
The little cat,
whose name was Patches,
by the way,
every possible spot
looking for her special place.
Even the dusty space
behind the refrigerator
and the floor beneath the kitchen table
next to the chipped blue bowl
that held her kibble . . .
and occasionally a touch of tuna.
was quite right.
Not the pillow
where she slept
next to her girl’s sweet breathing.
Not the basement
where her man pounded nails
and whirled saws.
Not the studio
where her woman
on the day our story begins,
Patches sat just inside the window
at the front of her house,
at the wide wide world
She licked a paw
and ran it over her ginger ear.
She washed her black ear next.
But just as she was starting on
her pretty white face,
something caught her eye.
