Mr. Huggs cat Buster is lonely. Buster stays inside all the time. He was very bored and lonely. But one day Buster gets out of the house and meets a new friend on the roof. Buster had a very good time with his new friend. Read this book to find out what Buster did on his day out.

I really like cats. I know I hate to leave my cat all alone when I have to go to school. My cat meows loud when I come home to let me know he missed me. I bet Buster was too lonely. I am glad that Buster did not get into trouble and that he made a good friend. One thing I really liked was the roof. It was very pretty. It had a tree and flowers and places to sit and even squirrels. I wish my roof was that pretty and neat.

I recommend this book to every kid who has a pet. It will help you remember that sometimes pets get lonely and bored too.
