Found this on I enjoy The Cat Who series.

From the cover -
What could be more purrfect for fans of the Cat Who series than an intimate look at the private lives of those amazing felines Koko and Yum Yum?

Koko is a remarkable male Siamese who happens to have sixty whiskers instead of the usual forty-eight. Yum Yum is an adorable female who will steal anything - including hearts. James Qwilleran is a columnist for The Moose County Something who has recorded the cats' exploits in his personal journal since the day each arrived in his life. And Lilan Jackson Braun is the beloved creator of them all!
In these stories, you will learn why Qwill considers Koko a veritable clone of T.S. Eliot's Rum Tum Tigger, and how Yum Yum is rescued from a burglar who is not above a spot of catnapping, as well as many more catly facts.
This delightful collection of feline antics will warm the hearts of cat lovers everywhere.

A charming and quick little read. I haven't read any of these Cat Who... books for years, but I have The Cat who Dropped a Bombshell to follow this up with. It will be a pleasant read, and I think that one is the next to the last. It'll be enjoyable to spend some more time in Qwilleran's world...

This is reserved for my upcoming Cat Stories bookbox. Hope the next reader enjoys this pleasant little read.

"Don't ever apologize to an author for buying something in paperback, or taking it out from a library (that's what they're there for. Use your library). Don't apologize to this author for buying books second hand, or getting them from bookcrossing or borrowing a friend's copy. What's important to me is that people read the books and enjoy them, and that, at some point in there, the book was bought by someone. And that people who like things, tell other people. The most important thing is that people read... "
