A stray dog pretends hes a cat in order to get a homeWhen Widget, a little stray dog, stumbles through a flap door into the home of Mrs. Diggs, he sees six cats, six bowls of food, and six warm beds. Theres clearly only one thing to do. Confronted by the cats intense scrutiny, Widget meows, purrs, plays with a toy mouse, and uses the litter box. Having eventually convinced his new family of his felinity, Widget is soon living so happily he sometimes forgets his true nature. But when Mrs. Diggs takes a fall and doesnt get up, its up to Widget to save the day with a particularly canine solution. A very simple text and droll pictures make Widget a book to read again and again.
