With a new Crazy Cat Lady cozy mystery coming out this week, it’s got people wondering how many cats Lynley has in her clowder. When we first began this Crazy Cat journey with Cats’ Eyes in 2013, Lynley cohabited with six: Dirty Harry, Little, Big Red, Violet, Solo, and the foster cat Fraulein Fluffs.
Tinkerbelle the registered therapy cat came on the scene in Copy Cats, then Lynley rescued the Siamese kitten Mab, bringing the number to eight.
Tragedy struck offset when Fraulein Fluffs crossed between Copy Cats and Cat’s Paw. Lynley adopted Emilio form the Cloverleaf Animal Sanctuary.
Lynley made it through Cat Call without any additions to the clowder but got busy again during Cat Café when she adopted a cat with Feline Cerebellar Hypoplasia, Elizabeth. Meanwhile Solo had been displaying signs of stress from all the other cats in the house and was rehomed to Lynley’s granddaughter Seleia, where Solo thrived.
Adventure Cat brings yet another cat onboard, the kitten Spot that Lynley had rescued five years earlier in her short story Cat’s Cradle. Spot was part of a crime investigation case, so when Lynley relinquished her to Friends of Felines, she didn’t think she would ever see the paisley cat again. Turns out she was wrong. Spot, all grown up and renamed Hermione, is about to leap back into Lynley’s life in a big way.
An elfin recluse, a handsome feline archaeologist, a stolen artifact, and one very special cat…
Adventure Cat, coming November 17th.
