That novel restarted the series. Published in 1986, it's rekindled the interest in the "éponyme" series "The Cat Who..."Not as good as number 3 in the series. The set up is predictable, the villain is made of cart board. Some really hicky body image values there that made me cringe. Qwill is now a food critic and needs to lose weight. Yeah, that bad. We meet Hixie for the first time, she will come back along with her zaniness. She's much better in later books. So barely 2 stars.
