Claws 2. After the Apocalypse.
For generations, writers, intellectuals, politicians, and military officers had speculated that World War III would be fought with nuclear weapons. They were wrong. More
In picturesque Athens, Alabama, a pet food company was working with an experimental cat food laced with hormones and appetite enhancers. The feed caused cats to add muscle, gain weight, and exhibit extremely aggressive behavior. When Doctor Patricia Reese, head of the research project, threatened to expose the pet food as a threat to public safety, she found herself out of work, her home ransacked, and all her carefully gathered proof missing.
The cats involved in the testing were scheduled to be euthanized by the company, but well-meaning animal rights activists released the animals. These enhanced, hyper-aggressive felines began to prey on small game in the area, and then the ravenous animals turned their attention to people.
An unemployed scientist, a small special ops team, and a homeless veteran joined forces to protect the inhabitants of Athens. Racing against time, they prevented the looming catastrophe.
But someone had stolen the secret formula that created the menace and sold it to eight foreign enemies of the United States. These enemies conspired to introduce the deadly food into the American pet food industry on a large scale. They also targeted the allies and trading partners of America. The American response was to disperse the compound into the atmosphere above the enemy nations. The retaliation also targeted the allies and trading partners of the enemy nations.
The Russians also acquired the formula and rushed it into production. In January, using their stealth bombers, they pumped tons of the deadly compound into the atmosphere over North America. Like the other enemy nations, the Russians knew that the first to recover from the attacks with their industrial capacity intact would rule the world. Therefore, they also targeted the trading partners and allies of America. They also introduced the deadly formula into a category three hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico, and a developing tropical storm in the mid-Atlantic.
