"While potentially compelling, this story contains elements that may disturb young readers. The cat is described as “scarred from head to toe,” with a “nearly severed ear” and “big chunks” of fur missing all over his body. After the camel steps on him, readers learn that he “had a bone sticking out and blood was gushing all over the ground.”
