It is a call to battle, a warning of danger, or the greeting of a fellow prowler stalking through the darkness, heading for a rendezvous with an adventure in one of the magic places -- those mysterious realms undetectable by mere humans. Tonight the cats are gathering to tell their tales, of times past or yet to come, of the two-legged beings they have adopted as their own special pets. So let us join them now, and if we are very quiet, as silent as a cat on the scent of likely prey, we may be privileged to learn some long-kept secrets of the feline kind. Listen now -- the stories begin: legends of such mighty warriors as Bomber, the ship's cat out for revenge on the German warship, the Bismarck; Graywhiskers, who ruled his kingdom with a unique weapon of his own creation; Bat and Punkin, who had patiently lived out several lives while waiting for the only humans worthy of being theirs; and Hermione, who, as familiar to an astronomer, would have to guard him not from falling stars, but from the unexpected dangers lurking in his very own home... These are just a few of the far more than nine lives portrayed in this delightful romp along the secret ways known only to those incredible felines! Book jacket.… (més)

A collection of 18 stories, most by authors I have neither read nor heard of (I've previously read stories that I can recall by three of them). I like cats and I expected to like this, which is why I picked it up a few years ago. This was the second in a short series of 5 Catfantastic books and I know I read at least part of one of the books many years ago. What I didn't expect was how much I would enjoy these creative stories. They lean heavily to the fantasy/magic side, but the elements don't overpower the stories. They are for the most part just very good stories that involve cats. I would have a hard time picking favorites from these stories, and there were only a few mild disappointments. I liked the stories in the first half of the book better than the later stories. Overall, I found this collection delightful and would recommend it to anyone who thinks they might like some cat tales.

Catfantastic II is the second anthology of fantasy and science-fiction based cat stories edited by Andre Norton and Martin H. Greenberg. I've read it before a couple of times, and this volume has some of my favourite stories from the whole series of Catfantastic books (all five of them), including P. M. Griffin's In Bastet's Service.

It is a call to battle, a warning of danger, or the greeting of a fellow prowler stalking through the darkness, heading for a rendezvous with an adventure in one of the magic places -- those mysterious realms undetectable by mere humans. Tonight the cats are gathering to tell their tales, of times past or yet to come, of the two-legged beings they have adopted as their own special pets. So let us join them now, and if we are very quiet, as silent as a cat on the scent of likely prey, we may be privileged to learn some long-kept secrets of the feline kind. Listen now -- the stories begin: legends of such mighty warriors as Bomber, the ship's cat out for revenge on the German warship, the Bismarck; Graywhiskers, who ruled his kingdom with a unique weapon of his own creation; Bat and Punkin, who had patiently lived out several lives while waiting for the only humans worthy of being theirs; and Hermione, who, as familiar to an astronomer, would have to guard him not from falling stars, but from the unexpected dangers lurking in his very own home... These are just a few of the far more than nine lives portrayed in this delightful romp along the secret ways known only to those incredible felines! Book jacket.
