Highway Cats

Highway Cats by Janet Taylor Lisle, illustrated by David Frankland
A hard-bitten group of mangy highway cats is changed forever after the mysterious arrival of three kittens.
"The old cat put his head down and limped away. As he went, a black despair spread through him and it seemed to him that the world had no place for him. He was doomed always to live hungry and alone, cast out along the highway like a useless piece of trash.”

...A poignant but dignified cat's-eye-view of a stretch of highway, a small, threatened forest and some quietly supernatural kittens.
