Widget, a stray dog, is searching for a home. This charming Westie thinks he has found the perfect place with sweet old Mrs. Diggs, except for the six cats that live there. They just can't stand dogs. In order to fit in Widget adopts cat behavior. He purrs. He climbs trees. He even uses the litter box. However, things change when, in order to save their owner, Mrs. Diggs, a real dog is required. Read this book and find out how Widget saves the day!  (Jean B.
