From the perspective of a way younger child, I really enjoyed this book. It was so adorable in the way it shaped around a young child finding a kitten and not knowing what to do with him/her. The cover just shows how adorable this somewhat sappy tale is, from sadness to joy. For any cat (or any animal!) lovers out there, this is an excellent read. As a child's book, I didn't expect much from it when I read it before. Will Billy get to keep Conga, his new friend? So cute! 3.5/5 Stars

There is some rather harsh violence and mistreatment of animals (cats) in this book. We borrowed it for our son who was horrified that the characters in the book were shooting cats and abusing them terribly in other ways. This book is not a pleasant book. Other reviews state that there is a happy ending - well, no one in our household would read farther than the cat shooting. We all ended up in tears. There should be a warning on this book. Unacceptable.

I really liked the story line of this book, and how it showed Conga's point of view too! But at times, like when conga was giving birth to her kittens, a little too visual. But I liked how Billy's dad acted nicer to Billy'd mom and tried not to start fights and be calm. So overall I really enjoyed this book and found it very interesting!

I thought this book was pretty good, because I liked how it showed what the cat was thinking. I liked the ending, because in the end everyone was happy, and there was no violence involved. I think he could have developed the plot a bit more, but I would suggest the book to someone who likes a short but sweet story.
