Story Summary

Every Spring the Old Witch's cat, Shadow, has a litter of black, green-eyed kittens that are eagerly taken home by young witches. But one Fall, just before Halloween, Shadow has a litter of one, snow-white, blue-eyed kitten. The Old Witch swears a white kitten is bad luck and that the kitty has to go. But Shadow comes up with a clever plan to save her child and to soften the Old Witch's heart.
