Six Dinner Sid by Inga Moore

In Sid's neighborhood on Aristotle Street, the residents don't talk to one another. So it's simple for Sid, a six-dinner cat, to make six different people think he belongs to them. He works hard for his suppers, with six different names and six types of behavior. But when a cough precipitates six visits to the animal hospital, he is found out by the observant vet. His owners agree to make sure he receives only one meal a day, but since Sid is six-dinner cat, he just moves to Pythagoras Place where the neighbors do talk to one another and don't mind sharing dinner with him.

How these stories are connected: Sid pulls off the impossible -- he finds six owners who feed him six different dinners. Jesus does things that seem impossible, too. He turns water into wine and keeps a wedding celebration going.
