Moe McTooth is an outdoor cat. By day he prowls Dumpsters and doorways. By night he dances down alleys in the moonlight. But when winter comes, he turns into a cold and hungry cat, huddling in abandoned sofas to stay warm. Then one day a young woman rescues Moe and takes him back to her cozy apartment. He becomes an indoor cat. And life is good—until springtime beckons, and Moe remembers where he came from.

Best-selling author Eileen Spinelli has written a classic picture-book story that will warm the hearts of readers everywhere. Linda Bronson’s exquisite paintings capture the special relationship between two unlikely friends.
