Fantasy novels featuring talking cats, telepathic cats, sentient cats, intelligent cats, etc.?

Please recommend to me some fantasy novels that feature talking, telepathic, or otherwise sentient cats. Ideally with human companions, but a society entirely composed of intelligent cats could be cool too. Thanks!

Can cats truly sense anxiety in humans?

I'm about to take my 4-year-old female cat with me on a cross-country flight from the west to east coast for the holidays. We're leaving on Monday, and I've been having butterflies in my stomach all weekend in anticipation of the coming journey. I have no experience flying with cats but have done all I could to prepare for this trip. [more inside]

Talk us in to or out of this...

We found a terrific high quality tufted leather coffee table leather ottoman bench thingie on consignment- this particular one runs around $500 retail. The leather is the soft non scratch kind in dark brown/ black. It looks brand new. We love the idea of it because we have a little human coming and it minimizes the worry about him getting hurt if he hits his head on it. It suits our need for a play table, changing table, foot rest and general decor item. The price it $140. Here is the rub: we have 3 cats. [more inside]

Shut this damn cat up, please!

My cat is driving me insane. We moved into a new place near the end of October/beginning of November. Since we got here, she has been so incredibly vocal. She's always mewing and howling. It's the same noise she makes when I'm in another room and she wants me around. Or when she's stuck somewhere. I haven't had a good night's sleep since we got here. It's a loud, shrill noise and I can't sleep through it. She keeps me up late at night, wakes me up early in the morning. What can I do about this? I need to be able to sleep.

My cat may have been misdiagnosed. Time to find a new vet?

Back in July, my 11 year old cat was tentatively diagnosed with possible early renal failure. This past Saturday, however, she had another round of bloodwork and urinalysis...the results of which indicated her kidneys are probably fine! Needless to say, I'm very happy about this. But the more I think about it, the more it seems like the clinic folks jumped to conclusions way too quickly based on too little information. Am I off-base here, or is it perhaps really time to explore other local veterinary options? [more inside]

Old Cat Hates New Cat

We have a fixed female cat that is three years old. She's a bit grumpy, doesn't like to be held but is affectionate on her own terms. A good cat. When she was a kitten we had an older fixed male cat. They were never friends because he was too old to play but they coexisted peacefully. Once the old male cat kicked off we waited a couple of months and brought into our home a 1 1/2 year old nonfixed female. [more inside]

Bored cat wants to play!

Cat question! I have two cats, one 18 years and the other 1 year. The younger male cat seems bored and wants to play all the time, but the other cat never plays and likes to be left alone. We live in an 800 square foot apartment, and the cats both need to stay indoors because of the neighborhood. Any ideas of how to help the younger cat have enough stimulation? Should we get another cat, or is 3 cats in a small apartment crazy? Thank you!

Why do we have cats AND Melmacians have cats?

In any of the Alf media (the live action sitcom, the cartoon, or any supplementary materials), is it ever explained how cats have come to be on both Melmac and Earth? Here, it says that it is unknown if Melmac cats and Earth cats are even the same species (presumably they coud be doing a kind of Allosaurus/T-Rex convergent-evolution thing), but perhaps someone out there with greater Alf knowledge can shed more light on this.

Specific resource recommendations for kitten placement in the South Bay Area?

My SO's parents have been hosting a pair of foster kittens since said kittens were born to a feral momcat in their yard on May 26 of this year. They're now old enough to be adopted...but I'm having a terribly hard time figuring out how to help find them homes. I'm in the Bay Area, California (near San Jose) and while there seem to be a number of cat rescue groups, I have no idea how to choose one or go about contacting them.

What do cats do when the Greys come for the humans?

Among narratives about visitations by the "Grey" aliens, are there any that talk about what cats do during the alien encounter? Do they just chill all cool-style? Do they FREAK OUT. Do they meow a lot or do they hiss or do they go hide someplace? Do they even try to bite the aliens (would be v. brave, imo). For the purposes of this question, let's allow both ostensibly fictional narratives and ostensibly real ones.

Do typical lab results for raw-fed cats (domestic and small wild) exist? If so, where?

Three of my four cats are (mostly) raw-fed. My vet knows about this, and finds their recent blood test results unremarkable, despite the fact that some of their values are technically "out of range" or near the extreme end of what is statistically "normal". I'm not worried if my vet isn't, but where's the data on this? Does it even exist? Do I need to perhaps compare my cats' results to those of small wildcats, and if so, where's that data?
