There was a cat
who lived alone.
Until the day
a new cat came . . .
And so a story of friendship begins, following two cats through their days, months, and years until one day, the older cat has to go. And he doesn t come back.
This is a poignant story, told in measured text and bold black-and-white illustrations about life and the act of moving on.
