Set of mostly fair stories with a few very enjoyable ones.

Summaries; occasional reactions:
Introduction: Speaking of Cats - A Very Weighty Subject · Andre Norton | Intro. Skip.

The Gate of the Kittens · Wilanne Schneider Belden | Mobile librarian finds entry to other world; takes cat and favorite books. My one favorite of the bunch.

The Damcat · Clare Bell | Cat prevents faulty dam from breaking; saves city.

Borrowing Trouble · Elizabeth H. Boyer | Magic. Cats. Demon-summoning. Blah.

Day of Discovery · Blake Cahoon | Shapeshifting cats encourage Prof's theories on dimensional realities.

Wart · Jayge Carr | Cat saves space ship for silly humans again.

Yellow Eyes · Marylois Dunn | Cat and dog return magic jewel to man with elephant.

It Must Be Some Place · Donna Farley | Tortoise-shell toms are magical; dimension of missing socks.

The Dreaming Kind · C. S. Friedman | Genetically engineered cats trounce monsters.

Trouble · P. M. Griffin | Cat promotes himself protector of young mage.

SKitty · Mercedes R. Lackey | Cats in space; again genetically altered but telepathic this time.

The Game of Cat and Rabbit · Patricia Shaw Mathews | Cat. Space.

From the Diary of Hermione · Ardath Mayhar | From the pen of the familiar herself; Victorian feel; quite fun.

It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s...SUPERCAT! · Ann Miller & Karen Elizabeth Rigley | Cat opts not to leave with visiting alien. When part of the title needs written in all caps, it is not a good sign.

Noble Warrior · Andre Norton | Siamese does various brave things; blah.

Bastet’s Blessing · Elizabeth Ann Scarborough | Cat convinces awakened Egyptian mummy not to eat his human.
