Book ~ "Duchess" (2011) Ellen Miles

From Goodreads ~ Mia and Michael Battelli have a special way with cats and kittens. Their family fosters kitties in need, giving them love and proper care until they find the perfect home.

When Mia discovers that Duchess's owner is moving, she offers to help. But Duchess is used to being pampered and adored. It won't be easy finding someone who'll want to spoil the pretty white Persian. Can Mia find her a new home that's fit for a queen?

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.

A friend of Mia's tells her that his neighbours are moving to Iceland and rather put their cat, Duchess, in quarantine, they want to find her a new home. Mia's family has fostered kittens and offer to foster Duchess and find her a new home. Because Duchess is a Persian cat, she needs more work in keeping her fur brushed. Plus she is used to being treated like a duchess in that she only eats out of a crystal bowl and likes having special meals prepared for her. It could be tricky but Mia is determine to find her the perfect home.

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 Duchess' point of view. It is the third book in the Kitty Corner series.
