A family of cats like many others, two parents and two lively kittens, is preparing for the arrival of a new brother, who unfortunately will not arrive.

Going through the stages of mourning with a little effort and encountering emotions and difficulties, parents and kittens will manage not to lose heart, and will learn that the heart is big enough to welcome even those who are no longer there.
