Reviews:
"...narrator Elizabeth Himmelman mews and howls with gusto...Himmelman's pacing ebbs and flows with Katie's efforts at self-control...her voice rises and falls as Katie tries to be more empathetic with the kittens." - AudioFile
"Lively animation brings this loving story to life with feeling and humor." - ALA Notable Video Committee
"The lively, empathetic narration captures Katie's exuberance and remorse, and the hilarious colored pencil-and-watercolor cartoons come to life on the screen. An engaging bonus interview with the author includes childhood photos and reminiscences. A winning package..." - Starred Review, School Library Journal
