Cats don’t pretend to like people who are a burden to them. They know who is essential to their quality of life and will be loyal to them, showing empathy. Otherwise they get their claws out. From Book 1: Praise for Magical Cool Cats Mysteries: “FUN! Step back into the days when you needed a password to get that drink, veterans had come home from the Great War, and the electric double decker trolley was the Bee's Knees of public transportation.

  There was an old man, an ol’ Texas boy, who lived on a road called Chatterpie with an uppity old cat - a cat who’d rather eat potato soup than catch blackbirds. A cat who liked to go fishing and sit on the bow of the old man’s boat, her face into the wind, like she was a hood ornament. "Fool cat," the old man would say. The book follows Jim Qwilleran, a well-established reporter, and his two Siamese cats, Koko and Yum-Yum. The first novel in the series, ‘The Cat Who Could Read Backwards’, was written and published in by G.P. Putnam’s Son’s (the publishing company behind all the books in the series).

  Kook and Yum Yum are the cats. I also like the Mrs. Murphy books by Rita Mae Brown. The animals talk to each other and help their human solve the mystery. Reply. Cecile Fleetwood says. Ma at pm. I just love her books! Wish I could live in them! Reply. Petie says. The Cat Who Liked Rain by Mankell, Henning and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at
