It is a call to battle, a warning of danger, or the greeting of a fellow prowler stalking through the darkness, heading for a rendezvous with an adventure in one of the magic places -- those mysterious realms undetectable by mere humans. Tonight the cats are gathering to tell their tales, of times past or yet to come, of the two-legged beings they have adopted as their own special pets. So let us join them now, and if we are very quiet, as silent as a cat on the scent of likely prey, we may be privileged to learn some long-kept secrets of the feline kind. Listen now -- the stories begin: legends of such mighty warriors as Bomber, the ship's cat out for revenge on the German warship, the Bismarck; Graywhiskers, who ruled his kingdom with a unique weapon of his own creation; Bat and Punkin, who had patiently lived out several lives while waiting for the only humans worthy of being theirs; and Hermione, who, as familiar to an astronomer, would have to guard him not from falling stars, but from the unexpected dangers lurking in his very own home... These are just a few of the far more than nine lives portrayed in this delightful romp along the secret ways known only to those incredible felines!
