This show cat is a no-show.... The one thing celebrity Trish Barrymore and her no-account accountant husband, Mort, can agree on in their bitter divorce is shared cat custody. But when Mort is found brained by a mahogany cat tower, and Justine, their pedigreed Chartreux show cat, goes missing, Trish calls on Helen and Phil. Despite a ransom note from the catnapper, Trish is still the prime murder suspect in the eyes of the police.

The Cat's Meow

by Emily Carmichael

Sparks (and fur!) fly both in and out of the courtroom in this sparkling new novel, second in Emily Carmichael's "Hearts of Gold" trilogy. . . When workaholic attorney McKenna Wright returns home from the hospital following a car accident, she has the sinking feeling that her road to recovery is going to be a long one. Her memory has more holes than a piece of swiss cheese; she can barely recall her own name, let alone the details of the big case she's been trying in court. And then there's the fact that her beloved cat, Nefertiti, has suddenly learned how to talk. Or is it that McKenna has suddenly learned how to listen? Not that she wants to hear what Titi is trying to tell her, because it just might turn her world even further upside down. Such as the fact that the music star she's been defending isn't all that innocent. And worse, that the hunky prosecutor McKenna condemned on sight is guilty of nothing more than his criminal good looks. But after losing her job and her house, and making no progress at finding her memory, McKenna needs all the help she can get to rebuild her life. She's determined to reclaim her fiercely independent former self, even if it means taking advice from her talking cat, listening to her bossy friends, or--worst of all--leaning just a little on the man she used to snub. Once her memory returns, she'll finally be able to put chatty felines and a certain entirely-too-handsome lawyer behind her so her life can return to normal. After all, normal is exactly what McKenna wants. . . isn't it? From the Paperback edition.

In this charming book, cat lovers will meet some of the most memorable felines ever found between covers-Teddy, who holds court in a private room in Caras's house; Xnard, who survived an LSD experiment before being rescued by the the author's son; and Omari, a tomcat who brings back some pretty strange objects from his wanderings around Caras's farm. Each cat has a different history and each illustrates some truths about what cats need and expect from us and what we need and expect from cats. Throughout the book are photographs of the animals of Thistle Hill and of the daily routine of life on the farm. The Cats of Thistle Hill also provides fascinating information for cat owners or those who are thinking about ownership, including valuable sections on feline breeds, behavior, and diseases, with plenty of practical information on topics such as choosing a cat, neutering and spaying, and immunizations.
