Like most anthologies there's some good stories and some mediocre but overall, it was a good collection to dip into before bed, particularly if you're a cat person. There is an element of..sameness, as they're all cat & court related stories and the theme of 'cat is left everything in the will' does recur.

Personal favourites were "Mr. Biggles for the Defense" by Matthew Costello and "Catnip" by Dick Lochte.

This ain't especially deep but it is furry and fun.
