Poor Doris!
When his new owners adopted him as a kitten, he was named Doris, because they thought he was a girl-kitten! He’s not! Doris is a big, strong, black-and-white kitten who loves his new owners, and feels ready to take his place on their boat (the “Prosperity”) as official Ship’s Cat.  However, the “Prosperity” already has several occupants, and they aren’t very welcoming.  Will Doris ever be accepted by mean Madge the dog and frightening Frida the hen?  And what will he do when faced with Jasper, the bully cat of the shipyard?

Join Doris as he learns about making friends, standing up for himself, and dealing with the changes that life can bring.  (Booktalk written by Sarah Hydorn   GSF Committee   Amherst Town Library)
