Mr. Potter's desire to have a fishbowl like he had as a child becomes a disaster when Tabby develops a problem with fish (they make her twitch and bat). Mrs. Teaberry and her good dog Zeke come to the rescue in an ending that is happy for all. Young readers will want to read more in the Mr. Putter & Tabby series, as these winsome pals have a way of winning the reader's heart.
Lee loves his kitty, Flora, who sleeps with him every night, and he is devastated when Flora suddenly disappears one night. The surprise ending will be met with relief and joy by the young readers. "A Bed Full of Cats" is a nice way of introducing cats and kittens to children who have not had any direct contact with them, and might form the basis for a life-long love affair with cats.
