Summary (IBList user synopsis):

An anthology, edited with an introduction by Cynthia Manson, of 16 crime & mystery stories featuring cats that originally appeared in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine and Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine.

Some references give the editor as "Anon", but the evidence of Manson's introduction and her editorship of two followup volumes strongly suggests her as editor.
