Little Whiskers has been left all alone. She’s always been well-cared-for before, but one day, the legs that are so nice to rub up against stop coming. Neither do the hands that pour milk into her saucer or make her purr in delight when they pet her show up. The room is cold and dark now that the hands and legs have disappeared. Whiskers is hungry and shivering. What on earth am I to do? the kitten wonders. Discovering a gap beneath the door, she wriggles her way out of the room. The world is big and scary, but little Whiskers has no choice but to go.
