Niblet & Ralph by Zachariah OHora

Two cats that look alike live in the same building and, when they sneak out to visit one another, worry their young owners by their changed behavior.

I am a cat by Galia Bernstein

Simon, the housecat, points out that he may not roar like a lion or run fast like a cheetah, but he has many other things in common with the big cats.

Floaty by John Himmelman

Mr. Raisin is a bit of a grump. He lives all alone in a little house, and he likes it that way just fine. One day, a mysterious basket appears on Mr. Raisin's doorstep. When he opens it up, it seems there's nothing inside... until he notices a floating dog bobbing along his ceiling.

     добрый вечер (say "DOBREE  V'YECHER")

     Then we were quickly out of sight.
