KIRKUS REVIEW

Still living with Mrs. Casey and still annoyed by her playful puppy, rabbit, pigeon and kittens, Horatio, the middle-aged cat, finds their pestering intolerable when Mrs. Casey goes away and there is no one to tell the other animals to ""leave Horatio alone."" So just as in Horatio (KR, 1968) he runs away -- this time to the home of three little girls who prove even more bothersome, and just as in Horatio he returns, reconciled, even to the point of jumping from Mrs. Casey's lap to play with the others. (""Really, they are not so bad."") Essentially a rerun for those who want more of tiger-striped Horatio's eloquent frowns and glowers.
