A curious type-written manuscript titled £YE SUK&NT MUWOQ with the first line of text reading "When I wad z vety ypung kotteb 9 jad tje mosfortine ." appears on Paul Gallico's (1897 - 1976) doorstep. In time Paul Gallico deciphered the code and read, "The Silent Miaow" and "When I was a young kitten I had the misfortune ." This volume is Gallico's translation of feline wisdom left at his door. It is a guide for all kittens, strays, and homeless cats to target, obtain, captivate, and dominate a human family to take them in, as well as an aid for their human care takers. The photographs (sensitive to reading of feline body language) by Suzanne Szasz starring Cica of Westhampton, Long Island, a kitten that, much like the manuscript, suddenly appeared one day at the Szasz doorstep.
