Not long ago, the fair town of Biddeford, Maine was taken over by a band of robber cats. They caused all sorts of problems, as you shall see. Because these cats had no homes, they decided to steal toys and food. But are the Bad Cats really bad? Can someone help them find the homes they dream about? Read their story to find out. A special section at the back of the book shows how you can help homeless animals. About the Bad Cats of Biddeford: The name of this book came about thanks to a story that ran on WSCH Channel 6 out of Portland, Maine back in the 1990s. At that time, Channel 6 had a popular features reporter named Bob Elliot, who was known for a program called "Bob's Basement." Elliot covered everything and anything in his shows, including a story on Biddeford's stray cat population. At the time, Biddeford had a large number of stray cats which they were trying to round up, and Elliot did a tongue-in-cheek story about how they were wreaking havoc. He wondered aloud What would become of the bad cats of Biddeford? His broadcast inspired this story. The story is a work of fiction and any resemblance to real places, businesses or people is by accident.
