One midnight, there was a relentless chorus of meowing in her backyard. Ms. Salvacion was forced to come out. She looked for the source of the noise. When she approached, there they were, four kittens in a shoebox. Soon she would open a Cat Library and by so doing, she was able to help both cats and people.
Isang hatinggabi, walang tigil ang salimbayang ngiyaw sa kaniyang bakuran. Napilitang lumabas ng tahanan si Aling Salvacion. Tinuklas niya kung saan nagmumula ang ingay. Nang kaniyang lapitan, tumambad ang apat na kuting sa kahon ng sapatos. Hindi naglaon, magbubukas siya ng isang Aklatang Pusa na makatutulong sa pusa at tao.
