A feline PI has found the victim of a murder. The only catch? He’s still alive, and the woman who is going to help him can’t talk to her feline assistant…


I both liked this short story and felt a bit “meh” about it. Nothing in particular, but I didn’t dive head first into this short story like I did with Snow Job. Maybe because I didn’t find the voice of narration as relatable. Probably because he was a he… and a cat.

One of the things I really enjoyed was the idea of finding a murder victim… who was still alive. A vampire, the undead who couldn’t quite explain who had attacked him and started the process of death upon his life. I also liked that he had seven women in his life who could all have a motive to save him… or be the cause of his demise. It was kind of cute and sweet how different each relationship was and how he managed to care for and act a different part for the different women.

I bought Dancing with Werewolves ages ago after reading Snow Job, after reading this short story, I feel that it could be necessary to pick this up and actually read it. instead of letting it decorate my shelves…
