Simple, rhyming words delightfully capture the lovable nature and hilarious habits of mischievous and sweet city kitties

Meet three city kitties: Nori, Yeti, and Flo. They live in an apartment on a busy street and can often be seen sitting side by side in the window, watching the world go by. And the world going by likes to watch them too.

This rhythmic tale follows these three adorable kitties as they make mischief in their apartment. They hide from a delivery person, play in a box, and beg for food. They get the zoomies, chase each other up and down the walls, and take a nap.

Playfully following a day in the life of three indoor cats, author-illustrator Ashley Barron’s vibrant paper collage illustrations offer lots to explore on every page. Fun fact: this story is based on, and features, the author’s own three city kitties, and the apartment is modeled on her own home.
