Publisher: Harper & Row

The socialization of a pair of street-wise tramps, Sinbad and the Duke, begins when they move into the neighborhood of Little Old New York and are drawn into the Cat Club through their big brotherly concern for the young dancing cat Macaroni. This is a flashback to The Cat Club's early days before the arrival of Jenny, and though the club's Rules and Regulations and tea party frolics which began back in the 1940's don't much resemble the activities of backyard felines we know, previously recruited fans will find the initiation of these two mavericks one of the organization's more worthwhile ventures.
