The Kittens

Plot

Katie Briggs and Catriona Challoner lived very different lives — Katie in a poor part of town with her large, crowded family, and Catriona, an only child, with her parents in their luxurious detached house. Then the girls found a family of young kittens whose mother had been killed. Catriona’s mother disliked animals, and Katie’s small brother was allergic to them, so the kittens had to stay in the shed where they were born, and the girls secretly looked after them, although they didn’t always get along.
