Kit Kitten lives with big Kizz Cat, and while there are happy times, there are also sad and difficult times when Kizz Cat is either too depressed or too excitedly happy to look after Kit Kitten properly. Then she is often hungry or cold and very confused. She also does dangerous things like falling off fences or staying out in the rain. Kit Kitten does not understand about talking about feelings. She doesn't know the words nor how to express herself, and it is only when her teacher brings Kindly Cat onto the scene that Kit Kitten and Kizz Cat learn about feelings and the need to talk about them. Kizz Kat also has things to learn about looking after her kitten, and we hope she gets the help she so obviously needs for her mental health problems. The pictures are vibrant and very expressive, and with one to each two page spread, they provide lots of information about how the two cats feel. There are suggestions on how to use the book for carers and some activities too. Available from Amazon, from good book shops, and from the publisher at www.jkp.com.
