Even catshifting ex-familiars deserve a shot at normal. At least that's what Tom Sanders thinks. But nothing ever seems to go according to plan. Not only has he saved up every dime for a ring that will hopefully convince beautiful Cassie to be his forever, but the Diner of Earthly Delights—the old family business—may soon be his again. After years of living as a not-so-simple feline, Tom's looking forward to finally cooking up something besides trouble.
But when Blackie, a tail-wagging, rump-wiggling, adorable stray, shows up at the door of Cat's Magical Shoppe and charms Cassie into taking him in, Tom winds up in the dog house instead. Before long, Tom has to put the last of his nine lives on the line to first rescue Cassie, then the entire town of Giles, before it gets sucked into hell and takes everybody’s happy ending along with it.
