What was this scary book about kittens?

Sorry but I have a sort of weird name-this-kids'-book question: Two kittens are trying to protect each other. I remember a couple of disjointed scenes and some dark themes of self-sacrifice, bravery, and loss. Please tell me I didn't imagine this. [more inside]

Looking for a book, can't recall the title or author.

I'm looking for a book I read as a pre-teen. It's been years since I read it and I can't recall the name of the writer, or the title of the work. I recall a little of the plot, but not much. As far as I recall, it was about a girl living in a small town in the east coast who falls into a pit, or cave, something like that, and is saved by a man made of earth and stone. [more inside]

What is the name of this story about waiting? "Godot" isn't in the title.

ID That Story: novel (novella? short story?) in which a man is standing in line. Pretty much the entire story is his experience while waiting in line. It's a future/dystopia story. The man is waiting in line to make a complaint. He falls in love with the girl in front of him, though she's not allowed to turn and look at him. It's a parable about overpopulation. It was probably written in the 60s or 70s. That's all I remember.

Can anyone suggest the title/ author of a book of conversation starters I once heard about?

Can anyone suggest the title/ author of a book I once heard about? It contains dozens of conversation starters - things like (and I paraphrase): "If you were offered to live forever, but only on condition that you were ugly, would you take it"?
