Copycat is the story of a cat who loves to mimic the actions of others, particularly the dog.  Too much copying leads to broken teeth and an unfortunate visit to the vet for poor Buddy. 

Not a story I particularly liked, the accident seemed vague and jarring to the rest of the story, such as it was.  Children who like animals may appreciate this story or very young children who like predictable tales, but it does not have the feel of a book with staying power.
