Mister Ron's Basement #1430

W. L. Alden had a long career writing wacky stories, but he especially had a knack for churning out tales about cats! This week we are exploring some of his feline-itious output.

Alden once called himself an 'honorary cat.' That very well be so, judging by today's tale, wherein a crafty sea-captain gets an idea to make a bundle bringing a thousand of the animals to Singapore in 'Pratt's Cats' from 1900.

This one is a scream!

Time: approx twenty minutes
