her life or her apartment.
brings her to local bars and coffee houses and the band scene set
in Cambridge Massachusetts. She meets several interesting characters
and isn't so sure the "cat lady" was murdered. But Lillian's friend,

into too much trouble, Theda finds a way to help.

light-read. While cats are a steady theme here, it's not all about
the kitties. Join Theda and friends as they find out who might have
put the local "cat lady" out of business. Can Theda find a way to
