KITTEN FRIENDS: Quincy’s Story
Quincy Persian wants two things: a great roommate and a chance to become a food-cat on KittyTube. But Joaquin Maine coon, the largest kitten, has taken over their dorm room. Quincy is forced to take the top bunk and hides in fear of this bully.
Taping new food cat videos should be his refuge. Instead, Quincy must work with kittens like Mirko Bengal, who bungles every scene. Lonely, Quincy turns to Ismo Bobtail, an international kitten from Japan who is studying the KittyTube operation and hopes to help start something similar in Japan. Life in the Kitten Dorm is hard!
In this exciting return to the KittyTube world, Angel’s brother, Quincy takes center stage. Somehow Quincy must keep his relationships straight and still manage to make the cut when the kitten actors are cut to only twenty kittens who will move on to the next phase. Follow Quincy’s path toward stardom.
