The Karma Cats find Noah abandoned and alone, but he doesn’t want their help or friendship.
Will Noah accept their friendship and allow them to help him find his forever home?
Find out in this heartwarming story about two superhero cats who refuse to give up on a new friend.

 Review: “Life is isn’t as high school reveals, and many of the lessons come afterwards. “The Cheerleader Speaks: What God Taught Me About Men and Myself” is a memoir from Kathleen Kastner who shares her experiences as she goes from cheerleader to real woman, and the gauntlet of everything in between. Strongly drawing on her faith in the process, she writes with much inspiration and humor, sure to help many a curious reader. “The Cheerleader Speaks” is a strong pick for memoir and inspirational collections, recommended.”
