The pawed piper
"A small girl wants a cat of her very own, just like the one in her book or like her grandmother's cat, Hector. So she lays a trail: balls of yarn, bowls of milk, cardboard boxes, and anything else that could lure a feline friend. And who should arrive the next morning but Hector, along with dozens of other cats! But when LOST CAT posters show up all over town, the girl realizes that her plan might have worked a little too well. Will she have to give all the cats back? Will she ever get a cat of her own to love? This delightful tale of wish fulfillment will strike a chord with any child who has ever yearned for a pet."--Jacket flap.
