Cats possess the ability to snub you faster than anything alive. They turn on the charm when it suits them, but then freeze your soul into an apologetic lump of ice with a single look.
The cats in these stories go to sea, work in the mines, foil burglars, engage in political infighting, solve crimes, and engage in dirty tricks to make their owners comply with their wishes. Not much escapes the scope of their powers.
With classic tales from Rudyard Kipling and Mark Twain, as well as new stories from some of today's most original storytellers, this collection simply dares you to pick it up.
