Whoever heard of a horse who lives in a house (while his owners live next door)? What about a greyhound who needs contact lenses to win his races? Or an American cat fitted with a transmitter and an antenna in his tail so that he can spy on the Soviets? Or two donkeys who have a wedding, complete with music and a marriage feast? These stories and many more - all quite strange, all very true - come from reports in newspapers around the world and are collected in this volume with a lot to say about the behaviour of animals and especially humans - who may well be the strangest animals of all.

She began collecting strange but true newspaper stories about animals in 1999 and wanted to illustrate them to satisfy her curiosity. Kathy lives in Brooklyn, New York.
