An irresistible collection of short stories for cat lovers.

At the annual gathering of the MEOW society, cats of all kinds convene to share their stories and those of their ancestors. Chico, the smallest cat in the world, recounts stopping a crime. The Pirate Cat tells of the fateful day when he discovered a treasure while hunting for mice. And Georgio shares his delectable—and sometimes surprising—recipes.

Cat Diaries is a winning companion to Dog Diaries, also by Betsy Byars and her daughters Betsy Duffy and Laurie Myers. With gorgeous black-and-white illustrations by Erik Brooks, animal lovers and reluctant readers will be wooed by the charm, strength, and wit of these feline friends.

Cat Diaries - Betsy Byars



Full Moon, Empty Streets

It was the third full moon of the year when cats around the world began to disappear. The alleys and streets were quiet. Trash cans stood untouched, lids strangely in place. Dogs sniffed the air anxiously while mice ran freely, unafraid of predators. Music drifted from apartment windows, unaccompanied by feline howls.

The cat population had a meeting to attend. Large and small, old and young, cats headed to an old abandoned theater. When the room was filled, the eyes of the cats focused toward the front, where a large gray cat with battle scars made his way to the stage. He spoke.

I, Ebenezer, call the meeting to order.

This better be good, called a calico from the back. I had to plot for three days to get out of the house to come. A Siamese slunk back and forth along the sideline. And I don’t have claws, so I took a big risk getting here. A fat cat yelled, It rained yesterday. You know how I hate to get my feet wet, but I did it just to get here, even though I heard we might be meeting with dogs.

Dogs? a kitten asked, shaking.

That was just a rumor, Ebenezer said. There was some discussion about a possible meeting with the WOOF Society, Words of Our Friends. You see, dogs have written diaries too.

Dogs? Diaries? Our dog can’t even clean himself, a cat yelled.

How many dogs have enough sense to write a diary? said an alley cat.

I agree. The dog in my house could no more write a diary than climb a tree.

Not so fast, Ebenezer said. "I’ve read some dog diaries. The stories are not

    Cat Diaries is a cute collection about cats from all around the world who have assembled at the MEOW Society. This book is great for all those cat lovers out there, and for those who don't know much about cats too! I would recommend this book to readers who are just getting started with chapter books! This book comes with great illustrations as well.

    I didn't have high expectations for this book when I picked it up at the Scholastic Book Fair at our university, but it surprised me. The story line is cute and features all kinds of cats -- from pirate cats to gypsy cats and even to library cats. There are, of course, just regular everyday cats too, and the very first story in the collection of one cat and his Christmas tree is probably my very favorite, because it is exactly like a cat! This book is sure to charm older elementary readers, especially those who love and own cats.
