I read this book in high school and can't remember the title or author and even the book cover. I remember that it was a story about a young girl who was part of a royal family but while she is still young the family of her friend (future lady in waiting) usurps the throne. The new royalty kills all of the former royal family except for the heroine, whom they position as lady in waiting the the daughter who used to be the heroines lady in waiting. One of the distinctions of the royal family is that they have gold wild cats. When a littler of wild cats is born she and the new princess go to pick out a gold cat for the princess. As the heroine is still recognized as a noble of high rank she is to have a silver cat. But when they find the litter the gold cat is much more attached to the heroine.
I know this is a young adult/teen novel. I think the cover has is tan(-ish) in color and has a dark haired girl with a bob hair cut on it and maybe the golden cat on the front cover but I am not totally sure. I appreciate the help if anyone knows the title or author of this book. Thanks.
