The Lovereading4Kids comment

A terrific animal adventure that really pulls at the heart strings but is ultimately uplifting and shows how animals can and do provide wonderful love and support to people if they’re allowed to. Thrown out of the car by his city-dwellings owners in the depths of the countryside White Chin must grow up fast if he’s going to survive. His abandonment is seen by a little girl called Kirstie but White Chin is too frightened to go to her, now at least. White Chin’s adventures in the wild are told by the cat himself, his scary adventures, his narrow escapes, his return to domestic life with the little girl who showers love upon him but that’s when it all began to go wrong.

Synopsis

White Chin by Marilyn Edwards

White Chin, the Cat that Walked by His Wild Lone is the story of a cat, abandoned by his owners and forced to live in the wild. He must learn to hunt, defend himself and avoid predators. White Chin gradually moves from the wild back into domestic life courtesy of Kirstie, a farmer’s daughter, who has been searching for him since she saw him being abandoned. Interwoven with the account of White Chin’s life in the wild
and on the farm is a strong portrayal of tensions within the farming community.
