In a subtle cautionary tale (beware of those "love 'em and leave 'em" Tom cats!), a sweet tabby cat finds herself having to care for her four small kittens all on her own. She selflessly searches the village, finding just the right home for each little kitten. It bothered Charlotte that she had to give them away, but it showed a mother loving and wanting the best for her offspring.
