Summer Reading About Red Cats



Red Cats in detective novels: Lydia Adamson's A Cat in a Glass House

Sara Cat and I thought it might be fun to try to find references or stories about red cats in books. It's summer. It's hot. Maybe you should read a good mystery while you are resting by the pool or gently swinging in a hammock. This passage, about a beautiful red cat named Millie, is to be found on page 11:
Then I saw the cat. An enormous red tabby, napping like a ragdoll on the ledge of one of the stainless-steel shelves, high up.
The only parts of the tabby moving were the tail and one twitching paw. What a wonderful place to snooze, I thought. And what a beautiful kitchen cat!

sounds like a good idea.

Sara Katt said...

@Cheyenne-Millie That is so cool! You have the same name as the cat in the story.

@Ann We are looking around for all sorts of cats stories. This is just the first. Apparently there is a whole genre called 'Cat Cozies'!!

Purrs,
Sara Cat

@Sharkbytes Thanks! That's very kind of you. Novels, short stories, even poems would be great! Would you like to be a contributor? Just let me know and I'll invite you. All I need is you email address.

The Gail Bowen series featuring Joanne Kilborne has a red cat... the cat isn't actually a detective... but she is red!

@Islandgirl Thanks for the suggestion! I'm looking for it now!

Best wishes,
