I gave it three stars because it was an interesting read, but as a "horror" book it's a miss. I'd class this more as science fiction than anything else - I didn't find anything in there I'd say was an element of horror. Granted, a couple of people get killed, but that alone does not a horror story make.
I still want to read The Changeling Garden, the other book by this author, but I'll be going into it with very different expectations now :)
It is my pleasure to describe Winifred Elze’s wonderful book: “Here Kitty Kitty” from 1996. It touches on horror without being frightening. It also grazes science fiction, grounded in a present day setting that feels normal. It is one of the best books I’ve read, with a uniqueness that is refreshing, memorable, and appealing to anyone favouring these genres. I put off reviewing it a long while, not due solely to chameleon categorization. I want to do this novel justice.

3.5 to 4 stars. I liked this book, there are parts told from the cats point of view which made me think of my cats and wonder. But this cat can see breaks/circles/portals from the present to the past in the atmosphere, and wonders why her humans don't react the same way. I found no horror in this book, but lots of interesting science fiction thoughts, and fantasy elements.

HERE KITTY, KITTY is a thoughtful novel about the beauty and the cruelty of nature and left me with both a feeling of hope, wishing the author's world of was possible, and a feeling of sadness knowing in reality it probably isn't. Parts of the story were a bit hard to stomach, the author paints vivid and painful images of the brutality of man and nature but they make the story all the more powerful. Being owned by a cat myself, I can vouch for the authenticity of Billie's character, her scenes w ...more
very dissapointed! The book touts that it is full of terror. Not even a drop of terror could be found. would not recommend to anyone.
