Missy’s Babies begins when a very skinny and frightened cat appears in the neighborhood. The cat hides under the bushes and runs from people when they get too close. After befriending the cat and convincing it to come into the house, JoAnn Hill determines that “it” is a girl and decides to call her Missy. JoAnn tries in vain to find her owner, but no one claims her. Gradually, she becomes part of the family.
One day, they notice that Missy is gaining weight. After a visit to the vet, they realize that she is pregnant. Although the family was reluctant to take in one cat, they cannot turn her away when she is expecting a litter of kittens. The birth of five kittens provides many exciting adventures for JoAnn and her husband—and Missy too!
As the babies get bigger, JoAnn notices that one of the babies is as small as a mouse, and the vet suggests that it may not live. But Dinky, newly named because of her size, is determined to survive. Missy’s Babies is the heartwarming story of what happens when you open your heart to a situation and discover that there is a place for every living creature—sometimes in our own hearts and homes!
