Dolores is the cat expert, always bragging about her cat, Duncan. But when Hillary arrives on the scene, proud owner of Harold, a Siamese kitten from a family of prize-winning show cats who has seven different ways of saying meow, Dolores knows she's in trouble. How can Duncan compete? Even though her older sister, Faye, advises, "Just let Duncan be Duncan," Dolores is determined to whip Duncan into shape. But when things fall apart during a hilarious Pet Day fiasco, it's chubby, nap-prone Duncan who saves the day--and Harold--just by being himself.
 
Droll pictures will have cat lovers of all ages laughing out loud as Dolores's latest escapade playfully explores the pitfalls of competition and the value of accepting oneself--and others.

Review:

"Details in the charming illustrations enliven the characters, both female and feline."—Kirkus Reviews "Any child who has experienced a schoolyard rivalry will appreciate the tale’s exaggerated dimensions, especially as expressed in Samuels’ characteristically gag-rich artwork." —Booklist "Samuels takes the routine picture-book motifs of jealousy and rivalry and dresses them to the nines in idiosyncrasies and details" — The Horn Book
