Scooter ‘n’ Oaks: A Cat Adoption Story (and activity book)


A timid orange kitten is crouching in the corner, hiding from a gang of rambunctious shelter mates and an out-of-place dark-striped brother.  Will either find a forever home?

In this tale of two tales, a kind-hearted petless lady, “Momma P.” unexpectedly adopts shelter littermates “Mark” and “Timmy” during a local adoption event.

“The name on his tag was, ‘Mark.’ Mark’s bulls-eye-like markings made him stand out from the rest…”

Detail-rich, realistic watercolor drawings by 18-year-old artist Rebecca Spiess are complemented by author-created graphic designs in this fictionalized account.

How do “Timmy” and “Mark” become Scooter and Oaks?  Chapter Two – The Homecoming – reveals this secret and includes a bonus section of hands-on activity pages!

This 64-page heartwarming introduction to feline brothers Scooter and Oaks is best suited for children ages 5-9 and is available on Amazon in both paperback and e-book form.  Signed copies may be ordered directly from our website.
