This is a short story about a cat living in a basement level used bookstore and its elderly owner. Tallie (named after "Till Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks" by Richard Strauss) is a rather spoiled cat, overly pampered and rather domineering, but loved. This story is "very cat". If you love cats and books, this is for you. It is a shape-changing story with a surprise ending. Good for teen-adult.
