Pretty Boy, by Bassam Imam

Pretty Boy is a beautiful story about a cat named Pretty Boy. He’s picked up by Animal Control, is eventually tossed into a gas cannister (gas chamber) with other dogs and cats. Incredibly, he survives. He’s on the run, continues to travel and meets peculiar characters on the way. Unfortunately, Pretty Boy dies, but he’s followed by another Pretty Boy, a skunk, who has metamorphose surgery to become like his best friend in the whole world, a cat. The second Pretty Boy becomes a hybrid animal (skunk-cat mix). Like the former Pretty Boy, his life is full of unusual events, and he too meets up with unusual characters.
