Realms of the Cat by Susan Kite (in paperback)
TB is perfectly happy as a free city cat until he learns he has lived another life in an alternate universe. The human girl in his former family is in danger and TB is assigned to go through an interdimensional portal and protect her. Instead of protecting her, he has made it possible for someone to kidnap her. Now TB must gather a team of cats and dogs to go back through the portal and rescue her. At the same time, he must figure out why all of the city’s dogs are disappearing.
Review by: Cheryl Anderson, owner Smoky Mtn. Cat House
Although this book is recommended for pre-teens and young adults, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's a fun journey of very clever animals trying to rescue their beloved human from some nefarious characters. I especially loved TB, a black cat with "catitude". This book had a lot of twists and turns that made it hard to put down. Susan Kite weaves a good tale and I highly recommend it no matter your age. Available in store and on our website.
