KIRKUS REVIEW

Very on the cuff notes of family felines by cinemactor Mason and his wife, this is for avid cat lovers primarily. It is not a how to do book on breeding, raising, etc., but is concerned with the individual cats and the experiences the Masons had with them. The irreplacable Gamma, who had a part in Pam and James' romance, Tree, who rates a deserved apology for his name, Lady Leeds, Baby and other assorted Siamese and strays. The tales and testimony add to the long collection of cat lore, and the Masons make a good story of the tragedies, litters, personalities, lost cats, sickness, and the rewards of having cats. They put on file their problems in feeding, housing and traveling cats, the manner in which they have built their lives around their pets. This is red flag stuff to dog lovers but of definite interest to all advocates of the fel- as against can-ine school. In form of digressive dialog, this has some humor and not a little information for cat fanciers.
