The Fire Cat
Jenny and the Cat Club
From the back of the book, “Pickles is a cat who wishes to do big things. When he is adopted by the people at the firehouse, this little cat decides to be the best fire cat ever.”
I’ve waited a long time for this book. Last year I read all of the Jenny and the Cat Club books except this one since its been on order at the library for a very long time, I had to wait for it to come in. Pickles is a yellow cat with black spots and big paws. The thing he does all the time is chase other cats out of his yard. He lives in a barrel in the backyard of a kindly lady who feeds him. She tried to bring him inside to live but he didn’t like it, preferring to stay outside.
Then one day Pickles chases a small cat up a tall tree and he gets stuck up there. The kindly lady calls the fire department and they came out and rescued him. But let me warn you, fire departments don’t rescue cats out of trees anymore! They might rescue you if you fall into a sewer, but probably not. So, let’s be careful out there, felines!!
Anyway, the fire department folks adopt Pickles and he learns to be not only a fire cat, but a nice cat as well. This is a good lesson for all kittens to learn – that it pays to be nice and accepting and not bully the smaller kittens because life has a way of evening things out!
This little book was worth the wait – and in this edition it’s especially great for beginning readers to read on they’re own. Once you read this one, be sure to read all the Jenny and the Cat Club books! They’re great fun.
Rating: 4 out of 5 paws for all out cat fun!!
