In each and everyone one of “The Cat Who” mystery books, Siamese felines Koko and Yum Yum play an intricate role. Their human James, Mackintosh Qwilleran, columnist to the Moose County something, shares some thoughts about these felines who enriched his life.

Koko came to live with Qwill when his owner died and thanks to the feisty feline with sixty whiskers instead of the normal forty-eight, the murderer was apprehended. Koko didn’t like being left alone all day and started eating Qwill’s wool clothing. He had to stop Koko from spitting up the resulting hairballs so he found her a pet of her own, the cat Yum Yum who bonded instantly with the man and his feline.

Further anecdotes about Koko and Yum-Yum reveal the personality traits of the Siamese cats and, how they all became a family, and some very interesting adventure they experienced. Fans of “The Cat Who” series will want to read this adorable anthology that will make a delightful unique holiday present for feline lovers.
