In a dusty mountain village of Oaxaca, the local healer returns from market with a litter of twenty-five kittens. The unfamiliar animals are not a welcome arrival. Misconceptions about cats abound, and some people go to great lengths to make the good healer get rid of them. But when an evil spell threatens a member of the community, the Mixtec cats prove their worth and win their way into the villagers’ hearts.
