From School Library Journal
Grade 1–3—After Jim's cat gingerly steps from her carrying crate, revealing a shaved belly and big black stitches, Jim's mother tries to explain to him the necessity of having Molly spayed. In the accompanying illustrations, cats and kittens begin to appear in every crack and crevice as Jim asks his mother, "Why are there cats on the roof and cats in my room?" "Molly and Molly's kittens had kittens," his mother replies. Five or six generations later, the house is completely overrun and Jim and his mother are discovering how difficult it is to find homes for all of the animals. The artwork is probably the most appealing aspect of the book. Hansen's familiarity with cats is evident in her humorous illustrations. The felines' expressions and body language are beguiling, and their whimsical antics lighten the tone of the book considerably. The text, however, does not always flow well. Readers are directed to several Web sites (no URLs given), but no sources are provided. An additional purchase for most libraries.—Neala Arnold, St. Francis Elementary School, MN

I used this book in my presentation to 2nd and 3rd graders at a Boys and Girls Club for our animal rescue group and it was very well received.
Highly recommend it!
