Format: Mass Market Paperback
Belden, Wilanne Schneider: "The Gate of the Kittens" - Yes, the title is a reference to Norton's novel _The Gate of the Cat_; this is a Witch World story, although not directly related to the novel.
Bell, Clare "The Damcat": The writing style here reminds me of Lilian Jackson Braun's 'oral history' stories, without an interviewer. The elderly narrator worked on the Black Canyon dam project in 1934, along with a Hopituh and his wildcat, and has his reasons for saying that it can't be demolished.
Boyer, Elizabeth H. "Borrowing Trouble" - No relation to "Trouble" later in this volume; the human protagonist is a fire wizard's apprentice who gets a familiar to keep from being expelled as hopeless. The character's names are all Scandinavian, but there aren't many other Scandinavian overtones.
Cahoon, Blake "Day of Discovery" - Toys with the 'cats are aliens' theory (see Norton's _Star Ka'at_ for an example). The human characters are physicists who may answer the eternal question, how can a cat disappear in a small apartment?
Carr, Jayge "Wart" - Spacers' shipscats run the gamut from the Biotech shipscats in Lackey's SKitty stories, where they've been genetically modified for greater intelligence, to this story. Wart and his rival Grimalkin not only don't mindspeak each other or the humans aboard ship; Wart doesn't think in particularly sophisticated terms, although this story is told from his point of view.
Dunn, Marylois "Yellow Eyes": Cat and White Cat also appear in _Tales of the Witch World 1_ and Catfantastic 2's "Shado". White Cat, the female, acts as a familiar to the lady of the castle, while the macho Cat spends his time hunting, bossing the other cats and dogs around, and cadging food in the kitchens.

...then you've got to try this anthology. Any one who enjoys seeing the world through the eyes of these not-so-usual cats can find something to sink their claws into here. There's SF, there's fantasy, humor, drama . . . almost any style you could wish for. Not all the stories will appeal to everyone, but the collection offers the reader a buffet of good choices with quality stories. I admit, I liked the second anthology slightly better, but "Critical Cats" had me seriously teary eyed. The fun of an anthology is that these are short stories and you can pick one to read anytime! It's my favorite travel reading!

This is the first of (so far) 4 books of shorts about cats. Many talents have come together to write about critters they are obviously fond of. I have a "89 paperback of this book and it, along with the rest of the series have been all over the country and read by quite a few different people who have been unable to locate a copy of the older books...If you don't have these try and fine a copy...used book stores, yard sales and library sales are good places to start and there are a lot of books well worth the effort...this series is one of them!

I am not a fan of short stories, but I enjoy the series of Catfantastic books. It combines my two loves, cats and fantasy. The stories are all excellent. The authors really have an insider's knowledge of the cat's mind. I laughed, cried, and cheered for the cats throughout the book. It's the type of book that you race to finish, but feel sad when you reach that last page because you know it will awhile before you'll get to read another like it.

Even though I am not a Sci Fi person per se, I do love cats (I have 4!!). I thought I would give this book a try, and I am very glad that I did. This book is a wonderful collection of stories, all involving cats of course, in a wealth of different genres. Some were adventure, some were 'love stories', some straight comedy in a variety of manners. I truly enjoyed reading this book, and plan to read books II through IV!

Nothing quite like curling up with a purring cat in your lap and an adventures cat in your book! ^_^
As with all compendiums there are some good, and some bad stories, but I feel that the good drasticaly outweight the bad. I've found this to be a well collected anthology series and would highly recommend it to anyone who is fond of cats!
