'Elephi: The Cat with the High IQ' by Jean Stafford with illustrations by Erik Blegvad is about a clever, but lonely, cat and the lengths he will go to in order to find a friend.
Elephi Pelephi Well Known Cat Formerly Kitten lives with his people in a posh apartment in New York. He got his odd name, Elephi, from a trip his people went on to Greek. His life is fine, but a bit boring. He really would like a friend. He spies a white Fiat, named Whitey, outside his window in the snow and the scheming begins. Elephi is a clever cat, but it's possible he is too clever for his own good. Hilarious, outlandish events follow as Elephi finds a way to meet Whitey.
It's a very cute story. It's also from another decade, but I think it holds up really well. The illustrations enhance the story, but Elephi is such a clever cat that the story would hold it's own without drawings. I found myself smiling as I read about this scheming cat.
