Tabitha the Fabulous Flying Feline

Author: Carol Ann Timel

First Line: Tabitha was a city cat.

Why you should read this book: In 1994, the real-life Tabitha escaped her cat-carrier in the cargo bay of a 747 and spent 13 days hiding within the aircraft's body before the real-life Carol Ann was able (with media pressure) to persuade the airline to ground the plane, turn off the engine, and let her call her wayward kitty. This book is a faithful reconstruction of the adventures of woman and cat.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You've never loved an animal so much that you were willing to make yourself look ridiculous for the creature's sake.
