From Library Journal:

Millions of people own, or are owned by, cats. After reading this book, it is easy to understand why they succumb to the aloof but appealing ways of the feline. Editor/journalist Damian writes about the everyday encounters of her cats, focusing on Sasha?the undisputed "Alpha" of the group. Sasha is our guide to familiar feline situations?litterbox training, meetings with dogs, forays out of doors, and introductions to new cats. Anyone who has ever had a cat in his or her home will relate to many of Damian's tales. Writing with a light, entertaining style, she offers a refreshing perspective on the human/ animal relationship that allows her to convey affection and emotion without becoming bogged down in overly sentimental feelings. Sasha's Tail may seem to ramble because it lacks chronological organization, but this does not diminish the quality of the writing and the fine story Damian has to tell. A clear winner for cat lovers everywhere.?Edell Marie Schaefer, Brookfield P.L., Wis.

From Publishers Weekly:

When she first moved to the country, the author was astounded by how rapidly her cat Sasha became the scourge of the neighborhood. He had previously lived in an apartment with no outdoor privileges, yet his predatory instincts were immediately evident. A black-and-white longhair, Sasha was joined by Charcoal and, six years later, by Tigger. Freelance writer Damian grew up with cats and reminisces about earlier pets in this entertaining account of life with her current feline friends. Sasha is such a dominant cat that when Tigger learned to hunt, he brought his trophies to Sasha. Damian describes encounters with dogs and other cats, and with neighbors. She examines the difference in advertising for pet foods and discusses varieties of cat litter. Readers who have pets, especially cats, will find Sasha and his companions captivating. Illustrations.
