From the back cover:
This murderously entertaining collection assembles sixteen purr-fect tales of crime and cats by some of today's best mystery writers.
Lilian Jackson Braun's charming Siamese SuSu is the first to smell a rat in a chilling tale of two spinster sisters and an eccentric neighbor. Edward D. Hoch's favorite thief, Nick Velvet, accepts a commission to catnap a pampered pet named Sparkle and ends up a whisker away from death. Ruth Rendell leads an unwary motorist up the garden path to an elderly cat owner's cottage, giving a sinister twist to the old maxim, 'an eye for an eye.'
These, along with thirteen other purebred stories of felines and felonies, make for spell-binding reading for mystery fans and cat lovers alike.

I enjoyed this set of feline mysteries. Favorite stories included "The Lady Wore Black" by Hugh B. Cave and "The Theft of the Mafia Cat" by Edward D. Hoch.
