The other day I came across The Story of a Street Cat Named Sabrina by Sheryl Lee. It was free on Amazon that day, but it is currently $2.99. This got my attention because I had a cat named Sabrina who passed away in 2012 ( of old age) : brina1

This was a short read of 39 pages that is based on the writer’s cat. She found her cat, Sabrina on the streets of Egypt as a kitten in very bad shape. She was thin, dirty and full of fleas and worms.
