I love the Cat Who books. I havne't meet a Cat who I didn't like. I have read them all.

Fourteen short stories.
"Phut Phut Concentrates" A Siamese cat solves a burglary.
"The Weekend of the Big Puddle" A grey-black tabby has to deal with ghosts.
"The Fluppie Phenomenon" A cute story about the ability of some cats to cause trouble. And how normal people can become cat people against all odds.
"The Hero of Drummond Street" How a neighborhood stray becomes a neighborhood hero by discovering a gas leak.
"The Mad Museum Mouser" A museum cat prevents a robbery. Featuring Rhoda Finney and Homer Tibbut in the Lockmaster Museum, known to readers of the "Cat Who" stories.
"The Dark One" A Siamese administers justice in a domestic abuse situation.
"East Side Story" Romeo and Juliet with feral cats. This one stayed with me.
"Tipsy and the Board of Health" The story of Tipsy the cat. The eponymous cat of Tipsy's Tavern, known to readers of the "Cat Who" stories.
"A Cat Named Conscience" An old scandal still haunts a woman in a nursing home.
"SuSu and the 8:30 Ghost" A ghost and a cat help solve a mysterious disappearance.
"Stanley and Spook" Did a witch's curse switch the souls of a boy and a cat.
"A Cat Too Small for His Whiskers" Some cats might be aliens. A fun story that reminded me of the dream sequence in "The Cat Who Saw Stars".
"The Sin of Madame Phloi" A mother cat avenges the death of her son. Don't mess with Siamese!
"Tragedy on New Year's Eve" A murdered man takes the form of a black cat to help bring his murderer to justice. ( )

Interesting little book of 14 strange tales revolving around cats. A fun and quick read. ( )
  Camethyste | Apr 25, 2008 |
This was a cute little book. The stories were short, but interesting and didn't involve me having to bend my brain too far around talking cats. The cats involved themselves in quite catlike [read: troublesome] behavior. A quick, satisfying read. Just like a Snickers Bar. ( )

Very readable collection of cat stories, wherein the cats prove that they are cleverer than the humans! ( )

First words
Phut Phat Concentrates:

Phut Phat knew, at an early age, that humans were an inferior breed.
Weekend of the Big Puddle:

Ghosts were no novelty to Percy.
The Fluppie Phenomenon:

We first became aware of the Fluppie Phenomenon fifteen years ago.
The Hero of Drummond Street:

After the unpleasant accident on the Jamison's front lawn, the cat retired to the shade of a juniper to ponder the situation, and little Vernon Jamison ran indoors and cried for hours.
The Mad Museum Mouser:

A police car was cruising down the street as I parked at the gate of the Lockmaster Museum, and the officer at the wheel appeared to be scrutinizing my license plate.
