Stanley's home life goes awry when he suddenly finds himself with a new, feline ?sister.' Making friends with this perplexing creature is not easy. Stanley's big, friendly sniff is met with an abrupt THWACK! from the cat's paw. ?ROWP!? yelps Stanley. No fair!

Even less fair is the way his people blame him for causing trouble when all he's trying to do is make friends! Is it Stanley's fault the cat doesn't understand dog talk? Given time and a bit of mutual understanding, can peace and purring reign in Stanley's house?

Young readers familiar with the ?dog's eye view? of Stanley and his world will rejoice at the addition of Fluffy the cat.

Mrs. Botelho's class thinks that the main idea is to try to be friendly with other people and get along. It doesn't matter if you are different, if you have a different colour of skin, or if you speak a different language, it only matters what's inside your personality.
The main idea of this book is that you should try to be friends with everyone, even your enemies. Being patient is a good characteristic to have when meeting new people.
Ms. Cimaglia's class liked when the cat slept beside the dog. We like when the people say "awwww" because the cat and the dog were cute. We liked when Stanley gave the cat toys, but his people always thought he was chasing her and locked Stanley in the bathroom.
Ms. Kemeny's class liked when the cat climbed up the curtains and when Stanley's people dragged him into the laundry room. We like the ending when Fluffy snuggles up to Stanley and they fall asleep together. We like when the cat purrs. We like when the cat swats Stanley's nose. We like when Stanley keeps chasing the cat.

I loved this book because it was from the dog's point of view. I have 2 cats so I know what they think about those dumb dogs. They are so different, but Linda Bailey makes them so alike.
