You know, the Czar got a bit creeped out this past summer when he was in a large, commercial chain bookstore and saw an aisle—an aisle—named Supernatural Erotic Teen Fiction.

What, exactly, constitutes Cat Literature? Once we stopped laughing, we began to look at the books.
The Inspector Dulcy mysteries by Helen Brown are quite prominent. Dulcy is a veteran English small-town detective inspector who uses bits of string pulled across the carpet to solve crimes.
Gerri Cooper’s Every Cat’s Guide to Thermodynamics is a popular read, even if it is a bit short. However, despite simplification of the math therein, it was a pretty engaging read for a non-cat.
The SunnyPatch Cat Sitters Club is a bit too syrupy for our tastes, but the younger cats seem to like the crazy adventures the girls get into.

Cats are funny animals, to be sure.
