I have been trying to remember the title of this book that i read in grade school. IT would have been late 1970's early 1980's, probably age group would be 8-12

I know the story was about an African American boy who lived in a run down part of the city and finds a black and white cat who is missing an eye( or there was something wrong with the eye).  He befriends the cat and his family doesn't like it so he takes care of the cat in secret. The cat becomes his best friend.

The cover of the book had a picture of a boy and a cat( it was a photo)

Any help is very much appreciated. I can picture the cover and the story but no title!

I just found out the title of the book. IT is JT by Jane Wagner.

A wonderful swapper figured it out for me.
