Thank you Lillian Jackson Braun your clever tales of KoKo, Yum Yum and their people have provided a charming distraction. I have enjoyed each and every book and short story (many of them twice). I will continue to pick up your books when I need to visit a place 400 miles north of everywhere. I wish you continued health.

I've always assumed that Mildred's husband died in prison. I think at least one book referred to him as being _absent_ without elaborating; then subsequent books said that Mildred was widowed.

I would like to know when Mildred Hanstable's husband died. I just re-read the first few books up to and including "The Cat Who Knew A Cardinal". In that book they talk about Mildred being a widow, but in the previous books I don't recall him dying. He tried to kill Qwilleran in one fo the books - but I thought he went to prison then, will you please let me know if any of the books actually mention his demise? Thanks

Isn't it fortunate we shall not be privy to the endings of our wonderful friend! Instead let us keep happy scenes in our minds. Just imagine Ko Ko and Yum Yum are sleeping peacefully on the blue cushion on top of the refrigerator. Qwill and Polly have gone to eat and are having desert somewhere. Tomorrow will bring more changes and excitement to our friends, but for now they are enjoying each others company. A bientot Polly and Qwill.

I have loved reading Lillian Jackson Braun books for the last 10 years. I first found her while searching for something else and "accidentally" picked one of hers up. Once I read it, I went to every bookstore I could find searching for her books so I could read them chronologically. I wonder though, is it her that has still been writing? I have seen two different birth years for her- 1913 & 1916, either way, it would make her over 100 yrs old at this point but I see someone else has posted that Intelius has her listed as 96... what is correct? She is an amazing woman and I hope we get more in the series.
PS I first pictured Qwill as being Tom Selleck but then he seems depicted best by Sam Elliot and I would so love to see the series made into movies starring Sam Elliot!

I always wondered that too!! Koko and Yum Yum wouldn't touch dry food or any type of cat food!!

In The Cat Who Had 60 Whiskers did anyone else wonder why Qwill would ask someone a question about automatic pet feeders? Polly was using one for her cats, when she went away for the weekend. He made the comment that Koko stuck his paw in it and then shook it. Qwill never fed his cats dry food!
