The House Of Thirty Cats

The House Of Thirty Cats by Mary Calhoun, 1981

First published by Archway Books in 1970.

“Almost An Enchanted Place…”

That was the way Sarah liked to think of the house where Miss Tabitha Henshaw lived with her thirty cats. There was no better place to visit if you wanted just the right kitten. Soon Sarah and the old lady became friends, and Sarah also got to know each of the cat’s personalities.

But the happiness at Miss Tabitha’s is threatened by an angry neighbor who does not like cats. He complains to the town council, which finally tells Miss Tabitha that most of her pets must go. Then Sarah has an idea. If she can match cats with people, perhaps she can save her feline friends and find tham all new homes.

Beautifully illustrated by Mary Chalmers
