Moo Kitty Finds a Home {Giveaway}

Any links to Amazon are affiliate links.

We received a free copy of this book to review for this post. All opinions are my own. 

Today’s giveaway is of the book
Moo Kitty Finds a Home . This is a story of a cat whose owner dies and the cat is then put out on the street. Some kind people help the cat get to a shelter where the cat is eventually adopted by a new family.


The author, Valerie Lee Veltre, studied creative writing at East Stroudsburg university.  She was inspired to write and illustrate her first book, Moo Kitty Finds a Home, after she rescued real-life Moo Kitty and gave him a forever home. She believed the resulting children’s book would help educate young readers about the importance of animal rescue, and especially adult pet adoption.


Kaitlyn loves cats. When we started reading this book, she said, “Mom this isn’t very happy!” But she enjoyed it by the end and has wanted to read it again since. It is also fun for us because we got our cats at a shelter.

    I have never adopted from an animal shelter though my hubby and I have talked about it once our daughter (and possible subsequent future children) are old enough to help 🙂

    i haven't adopted but i have taken a lost pet (we searched for the owner for over a month) to be adopted. once we took her we couldn't be informed of her status, so we pray she is in a happy home. she was a wonderful puppy but we had a new baby and no fence around our yard, so it wasn't the right time for us. anyway, we hope sweet "lonnie" has a home!
