The Catlady




Another wonderful animal story from the bestselling Dick King-Smith, involving cats, reincarnation and a very eccentric old lady!

Muriel lives alone with lots and lots and lots of cats. But Muriel's cats are no ordinary cats - they were once people she knew, nowreincarnated in feline form! Muriel shares her house with various (deceased!) members of her family, and one rather special cat - the late Queen Victoria! An unusual tale of animal madness!
