Yes, the cat books belong in the Wizard world.  In fact, some of the
human wizards make cameo appearances in the first one.  I recommend
them if you like cats; she really *knows* cats!  The first one has
Pavarotti being eaten by a dinosaur in it, which I love!  (This is not
a spoiler; it's a very minor, almost throwaway thing.)  And the second
one has timeslipping and Arthur Conan Doyle and Wallis Budge in it.

Until the sky falls on our heads...

"Where-e'er you find 'the cooling western breeze,'
In the next line, it 'whispers through the trees':
If crystal streams 'with pleasing murmurs creep,'
The reader's threaten'd (not in vain) with 'sleep'"
-Alexander Pope, "Essay on Criticism"
