Joe Gray, feline P.I., is a descendant of Celtic cats who can speak in a human voice. Joe speaks mostly to his human companion, Clyde. When break-ins start in their California town, Joe and his feline friends are on the job to find the culprits. William Dufris crafts voices that fit this story by showing respect for and insight into the characters. If a cat really could speak, one imagines that he would speak in the sardonic, superior tone that Dufris uses for Joe. The humans are well done too; all are portrayed with nuances and subtleties that enhance the story. Fans of the series will delight in Dufris's layered performance.
