When a simple housecat named Simon encounters some bigger cats: Lion, Puma, Panther, Tiger, and Cheetah, each of the big guys tries to tell Simon that he doesn’t have what it takes to be a cat like them…in other words, just not “cat” enough. According to them, he doesn’t have any of the outstanding features or special skills they have. He’s small and fuzzy, not big and strong. But ultimately, Simon finds a way to stand up for himself and show these big cats that he’s just like them . . . only smaller. In proving his “catness” Simon teaches us all a lesson about how we are more alike than we think.
