Sid lives at six houses so that he can get six dinners every day. People in the neighborhood don't talk to each other, so no one knows... It works out well until Sid gets a cold and goes to the Vet six times. The Vet tells the six "owners" that they are sharing a cat and they get very angry. Sid solves the problem in a happy ending.

Sid, the black cat, lived on Aristotle Street. But not at just one house, he lived at six different houses. And because Sid lived at six different houses on one street, that meant he had six different owners which then in turn meant that he had six different dinners, six different beds, six different names, and six different places he was scratched. However, Sid's various owners had no idea that he belonged to so many households. Sid loved being a six-dinner cat, that is, until he had to be taken to the vet. Sid had to be taken to the vet six different times, which also meant that he had to be given medicine six different times. Quickly, the vet figured out Sid's scheme and called up the various owners. Sid's owners were not impressed and made sure that Sid only had one dinner from then on. But, Sid was a six-dinner kind of cat, so he moved on to a different street, where he once again had six various owners and six dinners.
This book really reminded me of my cat, Samson. A few years ago my mom and I noticed that my cat was spending less and less time at home and he even started to gain a little weight. My mom figured that Samson had found an additional family to feed him and sure enough, we saw some neighbors feeding him! ( )

A clever kitty manages to convince six different humans - all of them neighbors on Aristotle Street - that he is their cat, thereby obtaining six comfortable beds, six different forms of petting (all in pleasurable spots), and best of all - six dinners. Of course, our wily feline has to work hard at being six different kinds of cat, but all goes well until he gets a cold and is taken to the vet - six times! When his game is finally rumbled, and the Aristotle Street neighbors decide that Sid should be limited to one dinner(!), our redoubtable hero acts quickly, moving to Pythagoras Place, where he gets up to his old tricks. This time however, Six-Dinner Sid's humans are very much aware of his predilection for roaming, and take it in stride.

This adorable book had me chuckling on my morning commute. It is clear that Inga Moore knows cats, as her humorous story and lovely artwork both capture that essential feline charm. What cat wouldn't like to eat six dinners - judging from the cat companions I have ever known over the years, none - or to have six adoring humans waiting upon him? The illustrations are every bit as engaging as the story: expressive, humorous, and heartwarming. I particularly liked Sid's expressions of pleasure, as his six owners pet and scratch him; and his disgruntlement, as he is given six doses of medicine. Six-Dinner Sid is just a wonderful picture-book, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to cat lovers young and old. I'll have to see if I can track down the sequel, Six Dinner Sid: A Highland Adventure.
