Not illustrated. 1898 edition. Excerpt: ...some of your readers would like to hear about our kitty and a little squirrel. Where I live there are a great many gray squirrels. We have a cat we call " Mr. Kit "; and he likes to play with them. One morning when we were at breakfast a little squirrel jumped upon the window-sill, and looked in at the window. I went upstairs and brought Kit down; but the squirrel did not jump down; instead of that he put his nose right against the window, and Kit did the same, and they looked at each other through the glass. So I let Kit out, and they played together for a long while; then I let the squirrel in, and he curled up on my sister's bed and slept until dinner-time. Your interested little reader, ALICe BoiT.
