About the Book

Niki is an elegant, classy, educated cat—at least, that’s what his family tells him. They all live in town, in a beautiful house with a big backyard, and the family takes good care of Niki. He walks out in the garden in nice weather and gets warm milk in the winter.

Then one day he notices his family packing up their belongings, and soon a big moving van arrives at the house. Niki’s human family is moving to the country, and they tell him he is moving too. He is afraid to leave his home and familiar surroundings to go to an unknown place. And once the family arrives, he discovers the new house has stairs, and none of the things he loves are there; he is sure they’re gone forever. But soon he learns that maybe everything in the new country house isn’t all that bad after all.

In this children’s story, a cat whose family moves from the city to the country is sad and afraid while adjusting to his new home—but eventually finds he can be happy there too.
