George Guidall assumes the character of news columnist Jim "Quill" Qwilleran with an authentic small-town flavor. In this episode of Braun's series, Quill plans to write an absurdist play titled "The Cat Who Was Elected Dogcatcher" for the literary club. As usual, Quill's Siamese cats, Koko and Yum Yum, join the plot. This time Koko is suspected of being a "psychic" kitty because prior to violent death, Koko announces the event with bloodcurdling yowls. Sadly, additional criminal activities--arson at the new senior center and death by bee sting--cause the plot to become confusing. Guidall's vocal antics and cat characterizations are the best part of this audiobook, which only die-hard "Cat Who..." listeners will appreciate.
