Cats. You either love 'em or hate 'em. But what happens when Mom loves cats and Dad detests them? In That Cat Can't Stay, Mom keeps adopting stray cats while Dad's objections get more and more absurd:

“Mom found a little calico. / Dad said, That thing has got to go. There's no use begging. Don't say please. / I don't like cats. They scratch my knees. They carry fleas. They make me sneeze. / They're always getting stuck in trees. I want it gone. Send it away. / I'm telling you, that cat can't stay.”             

Clever Mom convinces Dad to let each cat stay for a short time, and once they're comfy in the house, they never leave. One stray, then two, then three, and Dad is at his wit's end. When stray cat number five moves in, Dad finally takes a surprising stand.

Dog-lovers, cat-lovers, and even cat-haters, will love this funny, heart-warming book.
