The Adventures of Callie

Callie Finds a Home

by Dr. Ida Acuña-Garza

About The Book

This book is about a rescued Calico kitten abandoned and left to her own instinct to survive. Fortunately for her, Callie ended up near a veterinary clinic where she is found by one of the veterinary technicians. Callie is afraid and lost, wondering what will happen to her. The veterinary technician gives her food and water, but she is not sure if she can trust him or not. Before she realizes it, he scoops her up and takes her home to meet his family.

Callie meets the young man’s mother and little brother and Mitzi, the family’s dog. She is afraid of Mitzi but feels welcome when Mitzi licks her in a welcoming way. Callie explores her new surroundings. Even though she misses her own family, she feels safe and cared for. Her new life full of adventures now begins with her new family.
