When I tell someone I own an Attack Cat their first response is a timid giggle. They might think I’m joking or at the very least exaggerating. But I’m not, and my brother has the scars to prove it. His dog, a golden lab three times the size of my cat, is fearful of her presence. There are only few outsiders Shadow has come to accept as . . . fellow warriors? It’s difficult to say. Can anyone truly know what is going on inside her mind?
