Holly Webb Animal Stories #36: The Homeless Kitten

Is this Holly Webb’s cutest kitten ever? As gorgeous as a snowflake… and looking for a home! One day Lily and her mum take their dog, Hugo, for a walk in the woods. But then Hugo’s keen nose sniffs out something odd: kittens! Someone has dumped a whole litter of kittens in the wood. Without their mother, they may not survive the night. There’s only one thing to do (of course): take them all home! But Lily’s little sister is scared of cats, and Lily knows she won’t be able to keep any of them for long. She’ll even have to say goodbye to her favourite: a snow-white bundle of love named Stanley. Unless Lily can persuade her family that Stanley’s perfect home is with them…
