Leave it to Amelia Bedelia to find a real cat on a day it's "raining cats and dogs." She names him Tiger, and in no time, the two are inseparable and as happy as clams.
But then Tiger gets into trouble. Will Amelia Bedelia go out on a limb to save him?
The cat's out of the bag—this is an irresistible Amelia Bedelia adventure!

Herman Parish was in the fourth grade when his aunt, Peggy Parish, wrote the first book about Amelia Bedelia. The author lives in Princeton, New Jersey.
Lynn Sweat has illustrated many Amelia Bedelia books, including Go West, Amelia Bedelia! He and his wife live in Connecticut.From School Library Journal:
Grade 1–3—Readers may predict trouble when Mrs. Rogers asks Amelia Bedelia for an umbrella because, "They say it is going to rain cats and dogs." Then the maid hears a "MEOW" while watching a cat-shaped cloud, and a tiger-striped kitten jumps out of the garden. As always, Amelia Bedelia is bewildered by idioms, and she frustrates people with her own word choices. Fluent readers will chuckle at these misunderstandings, and will be delighted with the suspense and plotting. They may also pick up a bit of information about pet care. The generous trim size is wider than that in most early readers, allowing many sentences to be printed without line breaks. Sweat's cheerful and expressive watercolor and black-pen illustrations extend the story. Another winning addition.—Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI
