The first book in the Cha Cha Series is Why Jade Was Spayed. The story follows the journey of Jade, a plump little Siamese kitten, who wonders why she has so many relatives that she doesn't know. She also wonders why her mother keeps having kittens when it clearly tires her relative and is not in the best interest of her mom or the babies. Throughout the story, Jade discusses the problem with many neighboring animals whereby she realizes that spaying and neutering are the answers to the dilemma.
