Cats are inherently curious. It’s one of the reasons we love and are inspired by them. As a cat writer who reads a lot of cat books I thought I’d kept an open mind, but after reading Five Feline Fancies by Kristine Kathryn Rusch, I realized I haven’t. I confess to not being a fan of the sci-fi or fantasy genre but after reading a couple of the stories in this collection I’m a convert. Rusch is the rare cat-loving writer who writes not only writes prolifically in multiple genres but under various pseudonyms. She also writes a brilliant blog on the business of writing at KrisWrites.com
Five Feline Fancies, a collection of five cat stories kicks off with The Secret Lives of Cats, a story about a science writer who attaches little cameras to his cats to find out where they go during the day. When he uploads the kitty pics he discovers more than he bargained for. There is murder and a macabre new meaning to NIMBY or not in my backyard. The rest of the stories include the quirky fantasy The Poop Thief which blew my mind. I’d never thought of cats existing in this kind of fantasy realm and if you like this genre, you’ll love it. Only a true cat lover could have written the the crisply written and witty mystery, What Fluffy Knew from a cat’s perspective. All the writing is as good as it gets making this cat lover purring with delight.
