This novel has EVERYTHING a science fiction story should have! ---------Stranded alien astronauts, intelligent pussycats, meglomaniac corporate exectuives, nutty professors, beautiful damsel in distress (sort of), our hero (more or less), not to mention possible ecological disasters, mysterious islands, giant mutated rats and man-eating seagulls. There are also scorned (and vengeful) wives, beautiful and treacherous mistresses, telepathic children and evil minions of the secret cabal . . . What an absolutely wonderful romp!

It had been a standard missionâinvestigating
a communications station the Earth humans had
built in orbit. But when the General Alarm sounded,
two members of the extraterrestrial feline team
did not make it back to their ship in time.
Stranded aboard the space station, the two
outworld cats found their troubles were only
beginning. For when saboteurs in the pay
of industrial mogul Benton Ingles came aboard,
the cats were captured and brought to Earth.
But unlike the Earth anlimals they so closely resembled, these furry beings were not only fully
sentient but telepaths as well. Using all their skills and training, they were able to escape their
captors, and they soon found willing allies:
a college student named Tim, a wealthy eccentric
and occultist named Tedworth Vay, Vay's
telepathic ward Rhoda, and an aging movie star
called Lola Londi. And together, this oddly
mixed and uniquely talented group would take up
the challenge of stopping Ingles in his
bid to seize control of the worldwide
communications system....
