About this item

Description Adapts the short story by Mary Stolz about elderly Mrs. Olive Mixter's cherished life with her pet cat, Chino. Relives the 15 happy years the two shared, beginning with an uncertain union when Olive hesitantly took in the kitten. Relates her outrage when a young veterinarian suggests that Chino's physical problem is due to old age and that he should be "put away." Concludes as they discover Chino's problem to be deafness and, with the use of a hearing aid, the two return home to share his final years.
