Nine-year-old Kate Purdy is traveling to Oregon by wagon train and she's worried. She isn't worried about how long the trip will be or the hardships she'll have to suffer. She's worried about Snuggs - the pretty little cat she took a shine to in Missouri and decided to bring along for the ride. Kate can't bear to give Snuggs up even though no pets are allowed on the wagon train. So no matter what happens Kate Purdy is sure of one thing. Snuggs the cat has to stay a secret!
