Inside the Captain's house little Jenny Linsky looked out on the rainy garden and thought gloomily, "Things might be easier if it rained forever. Then I wouldn't have to decide what to do about the Cat Club meeting. Tonight the moon will be up and the Cat Club will meet beneath the maple tree. But I really can't tell my brothers about it. I'll steal away and go to the meeting alone." Jenny loved her adopted brothers dearly: "everything I have inside this house is yours as much as mine," she told them. But the Cat Club was something very special—there she could be different from the way she was at home, just because her family wasn't around.

This is the seventh book about Jenny Linsky, the shy little black cat whom the Atlantic Monthly called "a personality ranking not far below such giants as Peter Rabbit." The story of how Jenny courageously overcomes her feelings of selfishness and actually helps her new brothers, Edward and Checkers, become members of the Cat Club will further endear her to the many readers who already know and love her and is sure to win her many more staunch followers.
