Teaching domestic cats to talk would certainly be an amazing scientific accomplishment - but are you sure we'd really want to hear what they have to say? Here, a group of guests at a hoity-toity British dinner party learn that they absolutely do not want to hear from the cat.

This really isn't one for the cat lovers - but it's a cuttingly humorous look at the humans. ( )

Biting satire from this previously unknown to me author. Still trying to decide which were my favourite stories, though I can say I thought Clovis was a fab character.
