Catacombs: A Tale of the Barque Cats by Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Scarborough

This is apparently a story that is part of a larger series. The protagonists are all cats with some sidebar humans. This story returns the Barque Cats to their normal environment.
This book needs more back story. I felt like I had started on page 150 and had no way to get caught up. The story really never caught my interest and I am truly fond of anthropomorphism.
The cats see humans as some what dull servants which actually seem pretty much the way my cats always treated me. I found that aspect quite believable. I was disappointed overall as I could never get into the book. Sad to say I found it shallow and I have many books by McCaffrey and Scarborough. I am sure I have never characterized a book by either as shallow.
Die hard cat lovers will and probably should read the book but for the rest of the world, it may not be their cup of catnip.
