This book deals with the various issues a child must consider before bringing a cat into the family from the child's perspective
- Book Intro
(English) <Kitty, What Do I Do?!>
"A picture book about animals as companions, not accessories; family, not property; love and responsibility.
There’s a kid who loves every cat she meets, studies the cat encyclopedia, and catches the word “cat” in every conversation. She’s excited just imagining what it’d be like to live with a cat, but finds more than a few things to worry about. Cats have sharp nails (What if he rips my homework?), shed fur (I might get a runny nose!), like fish (What if he eats my fish from the jar?), poop in a sandbox (What if he turns the whole house into a sandbox?). Plus, where do cats like to go? What do cats think about? Do they want to see their family? Will my cat go to heaven like Grandpa? Will the cat want to live with me? The kid has all sorts of questions about cats.
Like people, cats have different appearances, preferences, and personalities. They also get sick and die. Every living being brings happy moments as well as emergencies and worries. We need take time to learn about each other, care for each other, and love each other. It might take a miracle, too. In addition to thinking about money and those we already live with, we need to accept that we might have to suddenly say goodbye. The book deals with these concerns in a cute, pleasant, and affectionate manner for kids. Not just about cats, it encourages readers to look after everyone and everything around them.
This book is about cats, but not just cats. For example, I can say the same things about the plant in my room. What’s it like to live with an alocasia? Will it attract bugs? Will it die because I forgot to water it? The concerns are similar. What about humans? I’m responsible for all beings that currently live and will live with me in the future. Despite my countless worries, I must do my best with my cat and everyone else. _ Lee Juhee"
