Not Your Ordinary Kind of Cat…

I don’t like living with cats. But I do enjoy stories about them. I particularly enjoy reading stories about humans who are also cats, in other words, shapeshifters. (Haven’t you ever wondered what it’d be like to shapeshift into an animal?) Here are a few of my favorite stories featuring shapeshifting cats….

Branded by Fire – Nalini Singh
When a brilliant changeling researcher is kidnapped, DarkRiver sentinel
Mercy, a cat, and SnowDancer lieutenant Riley, a wolf, must work
together to track the young man-before his shadowy captors decide he’s
no longer useful. Along the way, the two dominants may find that
submitting to one another uncovers not just a deadly conspiracy, but a
passion so raw that it’ll leave them both branded by fire.

Magic Bites – Ilona Andrews
Magic rises and magic falls. In this future Atlanta, humanity pushed technology too far and now waves of magic wash over the land. In this world lives Kate Daniels. Kate likes her sword a little too much and has a
hard time controlling her mouth. The magic in her blood makes her a
target, and she spent most of her life hiding in plain sight. But when
Kate’s guardian is murdered, she must choose to do nothing and remain
safe or to pursue his preternatural killer – a course of action that will put her directly in the path of Curran, the Beast Lord.

Dark Side of the Moon – Sherrilyn Kenyon
Susan Michaels trusted the wrong person and ruined her journalism career. Now she’s writing stories about alien
babies and Elvis sightings. But when Susan gets a lead on a story that could salvage her
extinct career, she heads to the local animal shelter, expecting a hot
news tip, which she gets in the form of a major police cover-up . . .
for a ring of soul-sucking vampires out to take over Seattle. So much
for saving her credibility. And if that isn’t bad enough, she gets
talked into adopting a cat and finds she’s allergic to it. A cat that
turns out to be a shapeshifter who claims to be an immortal vampire
slayer on the prowl for the same corrupt cops. Her first thought: seek
professional help. But as Susan’s drawn into Ravyn’s dark and dangerous
world, she comes to realize that there’s a lot more at stake than just
her defunct career. Now it’s no longer a question of bringing the truth
to her readers; it’s a matter of saving their very lives and souls.
