In Claws, she picks out just a few of her favorite tales to share with the reader, from "Sammy the Swooner" to "Tubbs: The Fat Cat Caught in His Flap."   In this week’s episode of Cattitude, Michelle Fern chats cats across the pond with Anita and her take on the individual relationships between pet and owner.
