The book is the precursor to Disney's "Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey." I loved this movie growing up (and still do) and was delighted to find that it was a book! Although the book does not have the delightfully witty banter between the dogs and cat, it does have wonderful descriptions of the animals character and behavior. Very enjoyable (and quick!) audiobook!
