This book is a collection of five short stories with seven illustrations. Sometimes in these stories the cats are anthropomorphic, in others they are...well, just cats. The stories range from about 780 to 1700 words in length. This edition contains one major revision. The fourth story in previous editions was 'Sibling Rivalry'. This has been replaced with a new story 'Bobbin'. The illustrations are the sole work of the author with the exception of the one within the short story 'Herding Cats'. A special friend, Anne Turnbull, kindly allowed me to use this picture. Any mistakes the reader discovers are, of course, the responsibility of the cats, who helped to edit the manuscript.
