What is it like to get your first pet? Little Black Cat becomes Maisy’s new companion in a purr-fect First Experiences story. Penguin’s cat has had kittens, and they’re all so small! Maisy wants to take one home, but which should she choose? One is playful, one is bold, one is soft — but then a little black kitten climbs right onto Maisy’s lap and starts to purr. . . . Maisy is eager to learn how to care for her new pet, from chores like changing its water and cleaning its litter to games like dangling a string or shining a light beam around on the floor for it to chase. Little fans with new pets in the offing will find themselves well prepared with the obliging Maisy leading the way.
