The Fire Cat: 04/28/19
The Fire Cat by Esther Averill is one of the Cat Club books. Pickles is a stray cat who lives outside Mrs. Goodkind's home. She wants to adopt him but he doesn't want to stay indoors. She quickly realizes that he is a cat destined for big things.
Although Pickles begins life as a bully, he is lured into a life of service through the neighborhood fire station. Pickles, to earn the respect of Joe, one of the fire fighters, he learns everything he can about living and working in a fire house.
By the time The Fire Cat was published, Pickles was an established member of the Cat Club. He is usually shown wearing his fire hat. This book, then, is his origin story.
