In our troubled times, For Just Claws
is a light-hearted escape, pulling us into a world where neighborhoods are
still a network of friends that genuinely care about each other. For Just
Claws hints at the plight of senior citizens who feel lonely and unwanted,
and shows us the value of a true friendship.
It also touches upon current issues,
such as anti-vivisection in our classrooms and both sides of the larger
issue of gun control. But most importantly, For Just Claws reminds us not to
take ourselves too seriously.
