Unfortunately, this anthology was a bit disappointing. There was not much really awful writing (though the author whose first few paragraph contained extremely flowery prose- "the celestial Crescent" rather than "the moon" amongst it- could have stood some editing), but unfortunately, neither was there any story that stood out for me as brilliant- and usually there's one in most anthologies.
This isn't really a shared-world anthology; it's more of a themed one. The details of the Cat Civilization vary from story to story, and there are no recurring characters.
Several of the stories had cats much more altruistically involved in our human world than I think is plausible for cats! Also, in most of them the cats were akin to action heroes- and anyone who has lived with a pussycat would find that unlikely, given their demanding napping schedule.
I will say that many of the stories got much more violent than I would have expected, especially in stories about a species that mostly plots from the shadows rather than one that sails into battle *cough*dogs*cough*.
And, for me anyway, most of the stories did not make me think "Yeah! That's JUST like a cat!"
Still, if you like cat-themed fiction, it's not a bad read, even though it rather misses the point of cats for the most part.
