In Catalyst, award-winning authors Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Ann Scarborough introduced listeners to the beguiling Barque Cats: spacefaring felines who serve aboard starships as full-fledged members of the crew. Highly evolved, the cats share an almost telepathic bond with their minders, or Cat Persons — until, suddenly, there is no “almost” about it, and a particular Barque Cat, Chester, learns to ex- change thoughts with his human friend, Jubal. Other cats soon gain the same ability.

What made the experience of listening to Catacombs the most enjoyable?

Several of my cats could have played the cats in these books. .

Which scene was your favorite?

I have a "Chester" for sure. and he had his nose knocked on the side of his head several times just trying to please the females. Had to have him neutered before he got his nose knocked off.
