The events here are classic, the narrative is simplicity itself...Altogether, this is a satisfyingly fresh rendition of the old scenario of a wanderer landing safely in a loving home.
—The Horn Book
While animal-loving kids especially will sigh with satisfaction as the cat finally finds a kind-hearted caretaker, this plotline will likely resonate with any youngster who yearns for belonging... the little cat is a charming waif, from his bony frame to his huge, expressive golden eyes, and his skittish uncertainty is as effectively depicted as his eventual paw-kneading contentment.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
