Cats and Dogs 

Books: No Dogs Allowed by Anne Davis

Ever wonder what's going on in your cat's head? A new children's book by Barre author Anne Davis imagines the silly-fun inner life of her cats. In No Dogs Allowed!, Davis shares thoughts from Bud and Gabby, who write in surprisingly vivid and colorful voices. The orange tabby Buddy Mueller describes a dog's imposition on his carefree life with pal Gabby. Buddy is a great storyteller — Davis even lets him write her blog. In their spare time, the cats shred the newspaper and play with socks. They also don raincoats and open an umbrella for a rainy search. The book is a sequel to the 2006 Bud and Gabby, and the cats also appear in Davis' pet-inspired greeting-card art. The characters are a tribute to Davis' real-life cats, who passed away years ago. The stories are a way to keep them alive. "That makes it really fun to be working on this," she says.

"No dogs allowed:" Published by HarperCollins and available in hardcover, $16.99. Info, annemadecards.com
