Summary

Summary

Dr. David Westbrook, a small-town veterinarian, has a one-eyed, three-legged cat named Franken Kat, whom he found by the roadside and patched together. In seven carefully crafted tales, David finds that his ministrations to cats, dogs, horses and other four-legged creatures lead him to dark and dangerous side of more complicated creatures -- the two-legged kind.
