Talking of cats and Lilian Braun, whom Kay mentioned up above, I havenít read any of Braun's "Cat Who Ö" series, but enjoyed a short story by her called "Phut Phat concentrates" (1963, preceding the first "Cat Who"). A Siamese cat manages (by concentrating his thoughts on the mind of one of his owners) to make him realise who has burgled the house. In the process, he realises that the other owner (the one who gives him his food) is less receptive and maybe not the real power in the household that he had thought.
