(From the publisher):
Jessica went to visit her grandfather.
He lived by himself and sometimes he got lonely.
When she got there, her grandfather was sitting on the back step holding a bowl of milk.
”There’s a little wild cat in the bushes,” he said. “She must be hungry, but she won’t come out.”
”You can’t rush a cat, Granddaddy,” Jessica said.
Jessica’s grandfather is eager to meet the wild little cat who streaks into the house and hides in the basement, but Jessica knows that it takes great patience to woo a cat. She waits and waits and then, near the end of her visit, she sits down in the middle of the kitchen floor and puts to work all her knowledge of felines. When she goes home, her grandfather has a new friend.
