Kat Hennessey is a writer looking for the right cat and the right man.
Cary Rodrigo Grant is the most eligible man Kat’s met in a cat’s age.
Kat has a lot of worries. There’s the Great American Novel she’s writing that won’t come together in her mind there’s the sneaky student slut seeking to steal her husband Cary there’s the Faculty Wives Committee that wants her to get excited about evergreens. And then there’s the crack in the basement wall of her house and what she and her Burmese cat O’Leary find when they go through it into alternative realities . . . everything from giant rats to vampires to ancient Roman assassins to a two-headed fire-breathing Etruscan monster.
Cat and Kat form a tight feline/human bond as they leap from one adventure to another. And soon they suspect that if they can get out through the crack in the basement wall something seriously unpleasant can get in . . .
All cats are nice and some cats are special and one was the most special of all my pal O’Leary.—Kat Hennessey
