Baba the Cat is a domestic short hair tabby with a love for adventure and history. Despite weighing in at less than nine pounds, she is big on the inside and never has any cat or human stood in the way of her getting what she wants. A Cat's Tale is her first book, and she has offered the opinion that writing is drudgery so it will probably turn out to be her last.
