Filled with color photographs and real-life stories, Cat Champions will inspire and empower readers of all ages.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Here's a book for cat lovers and those who want to know more about caring for furry friends. Laidlaw offers a slew of information (not always particularly well organized) about cats: history, breeds, care, and habits of both domesticated and feral cats. But the book's centerpiece is the cat champions, or young people (some eight or nine years old) who have gone above and beyond to make life better for felines. Among them are a girl who started Blankets Fur Beasties, which collects blankets, quilts, towels, and other supplies for shelters; a seven-year-old boy, who volunteers for animal protection in China, feeding feral cats; and a family, led by their teen daughter who specializes in fostering cats. The format is busy, but cat lovers probably won't mind so many photos, and the sidebars are all informative. The list of organizations where kids can learn about ways they can help is extensive and useful.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2014 Booklist"
