An old man lives alone…until one day, when he goes to feed the squirrels, he discovers a kitten under his hat! The old man names him Hat, and they quickly become best friends and do everything together–except every afternoon, when the old man goes outside to feed the squirrels, he closes the door tight behind him. He doesn’t want Hat to run away or chase the squirrels-or worse. Then one day, things change. The old man is gone. Some new people come to take care of Hat, and he gets the chance he’s always been hoping for…Will he run away or chase the squirrels–or worse? Troy Wilson’s tender prose along with Eve Coy’s charming illustrations bring readers a sweet story about companionship and taking chances.
