    This edition was published in 1991 but I read it literally my lifetime ago It was my favorite book at age 6 or 7 Was already hooked on sci fi and cats of course Wonderful illustrations The respect shown Space Cat by the humans in the story puts humans in a wonderful light Also loved Space Cat Meets Mars as well as Space Cat Visits Venus Ruthven Todd by the way also wrote an excellent essay on William Blake which I read about 40 years later

    I read this book at age 7 after checking it out from the school library This book with its 3 companions Space Cat Visits Venus etc are the first science fiction books I ever read and I can trace my love of that genre to this series

    Princess Fuzzypants here Space Cat was written and published back in 1952 It tells the story of a kitten named Flyball who manages to adopt an astronaut still called rocketeers back then and ends up going to the moon with his human Flyball is a kitty I can love He is very adventurous and determined Even when the humans want to stop him from doing something he finds a way He like me in my palace rules the roost He knows he is in charge and his human would not be able to exist without him In fact Flyball does save his human’s life Some humans accept the inevitable uicker than others but he wins over all of themIt is fascinating reading this 60 plus years after it was written This was long before any living creature was shot into space and nearly twenty years before the moon landing Naturally since it is a fantasy there are lots of elements that are whimsical However on other things it gets close to the markOverall it is simply a charming story with lovely characters and delightful artwork It would be a welcome addition for readers young and old I give it a hearty five purrs and two paws up

    Half of the idea is 1950s futurist science fiction conceivable though now known to be wrong and half is ridiculous fantasy inconceivable even then
