Book ~ "Domino" (2012) Ellen Miles

From Goodreads ~ Mia and Michael Battelli would love a kitty of their very own. But until their family is ready for a full-time pet, they foster cats and kittens. They give them lots of love and attention, and help these cute kitties find the perfect home. 

On a cold winter night, Michael discovers an adorable tuxedo kitten lost in the snow. Domino is wearing a collar but the tag is missing. He's scared, hungry and all alone. It's up to Michael to help this kitten in need. Will he be able to find Domino's home?

Mia and Michael are in elementary school. They'd like to have a pet but they live in an apartment and their parents don't it's the right time or place to have one.

Michael is sledding with a friend when he sees a tuxedo kitten as he is flying down the hill. Michael takes the kitten home but because of a snowstorm, the family isn't able to put up "found cat" posters or bring the kitten to the vet to check for a chip for a few days. The family get attached to the rambunctious kitty who they name Domino. If they can't find the owner, will they be able to find a home for Domino?

Though this book is a quick read and directed at elementary-aged children, I found it entertaining. There was a cat quiz at the end along some info about cats. It is written in third person perspective and first person from Domino's point of view. It is the fourth book in the Kitty Corner series.
