Story Summary

When Patty and her grandfather went with young Dan to see him off on his first voyage as a cabin boy on the "Adventure," Patty's kitten, Tiger, unknowingly jumped aboard. When they returned from India, Patty found her brother to be a young man and her kitten to be a fully grown cat who was, none-the-less, very happy to be home and in Patty's lap.
