About this title


Cecile Savoy demands that her co-Thespian friends accompany her to the taxidermist, where she is perpetuating the body of her ancient Pekinese, "that revolting little floor mop she was so attached to," according to Trixie. Finding the shop owner dead on the floor of his office was the first shock, finding the shop suddenly enveloped in flames was the next. But the final blow to Dame Cecile was discovering that instead of rescuing the remains of the expired Fleur de Lys, Trixie snatched up a very much alive Japanese bobtail cat named Cho Cho San.

From the Back Cover:

A Purrfect Crime!

Dame Cecile Savoy's "revolting floor mop" of a Pekinese has passed away at a ripe old age. Now, the aging British actress convinces her rivals on stage and screen, Trixie and Evangeline, to support her in her hour of accompanying her to a taxidermist. But it's a cab ride straight to a cat-astrope! No sooner do the three elderly thespians enter "Stuff Yours" than they discover a dead body, a live kitty in a cage, and flames bursting from the back room. Fortunately for a rare Japanese bobtail called Cho-Cho-San, Trixie grabs the cat before fleeing the scene. But who's the victim? Who set the fire? And why was a gorgeous feline going to be stuffed? Of course, Cho-Cho-San knows more than she's letting on as the curtain goes up on foul play, murderous jealousies, and a killer who may be going to the dogs....

"Cat lovers will jump at prolific Marian Babson's latest cozy." -Publishers Weekly
