KIRKUS REVIEW

This slim (25 pp.) tale about an anthropomorphic cat who moves from city apartment to country farm probably would have been classified as a juvenile before the current cat craze; now, it seems, adults may be interested in how George the cat gets along with his new neighbors--the horse, the sheep, the goat, and the squirrel. There's no sex, but there is a bit of violence as sweet George transforms into a ferocious feline ("". . .Blood of the Panther/Blood of the Lion/Blood of the Tiger/Wild. . .The chant ran on through his veins as if it were an essential, ancient part of him"") and fights off a wild dog. Just the thing, then, for those who plan to spend their leisure time reading aloud to their cats.
